|Disasters caused by Nuclear,
Biological, and Chemical materials are unpredictable accidents
and they are called NBC Disasters. However, in most cases they
are terror attacks.
Taking into consideration the current international situation, it
may be required to prepare countermeasures against NBC disasters
at events that attract large crowds. It can happen anytime and anywhere.
Moreover, once it happens, many casualties will be transferred to
the regional medical center. In this case, decontamination of them
is required and protective clothes and respirators for medical and
rescue workers are needed.
Protective respirators for medical admissions staff against NBC contaminants
with casualties, are also needed.
NBC Evacuation respirator
TZ-1 full facepiece respirator protects wearer from breathing radioactive
particulates, weaponized anthrax, sarin and cyanide fume.
Half face type model TH-1 and TH-1H (Hood type) uses the same cartridge
as TZ-1 and they cover nose and mouth only. These models are equivalent
to EPA (Environmental Protection Agency, USA) Level C , guide line
for Personal Protective Equipment.
Caution: These respirators do NOT
eliminate risk of infection. Efficiency depends on the
types of NBC weapons, and NOT assures complete protection.
Especially, they do NOT supply perfect protection especially
against chemical weapons that can be absorbed through skin.
With some virus, performance will be decreased.
