Resumo: Nosocomial infections pose an escalating threat to both patients and healthcare workers (HCWs). A widely recommended device for individual respiratory protection, the N95 filtering facepiece respirator (FFR) has been shown to provide efficient filtration of inert particles larger and smaller than the nominal most-penetrating particle size (MPPS) range, 0.03-0.3 µm. Humans generate respiratory aerosols in the MPPS range, suggesting that short-range disease transmission could occur via smal (mais)
