We use the N-95 mask for patients and use a blanket for infants, similar to your practice. It’s something that our Infectious Disease, Epidemiology, and BMT teams reevaluate regularly but they have yet to identify a suitable alternative.

HI all, We are exploring options for our stem cell transplant patients masks. We are currently using the N-95 or the Hepa filter mask depending on the patients age and size. For our infants, we just have the parents put a blanket over their face.
What are other people using? WE have had a number of inquires about the dusk mask that are on the intranet but have been very hesitant to endorse them.
Thanks for your input. Lisa
