Everyone depends on more than just theirs ears to communicate. Wouldn’t it be great if nurses could not only hear the doctor while in surgery but also see his lips while he wears a protective mask? Wouldn’t it be great if you could not only hear a nurse but also see their lips move when they wear a protective mask?
Prestige–Ameriteh has invented a new mask that has a clear window so that others can see lip movements behind the mask. I think it is a very clever design that will help overcome the speech processing problems that doctors have in noisy operating room situations. A 2013 study from the Journal of the American College of Surgeons documented that ambient background noise in the operating room is a safety factor because it challenges the surgeons auditory processing.
The Communicator clear mask is an FDA approved surgical face mask. Manufactured by Prestige-Ameritech in North Richland Hills, Texas, this mask is proudly made in the USA. Anyone can purchase the clear mask; you can visit the website www.SafeNClear.com or order online at Amazon. You may want to order a box and show to your medical and dental providers.
