||Facial dimensions and predictors of fit for half-mask respirators in Koreans
||Nov.-Dec. 2003, Vol.64, No.6, p.815-822. Illus. 18 ref.
||This study investigated the relationship between facial dimensions and the fit of half-mask respirators using fit factors and selected good facial dimension predictors of fit for designing respirators for Korean workers. Three different brands of half-mask respirators were fit-tested on 112 men and 38 women. Before fit-testing, 10 facial dimensions were measured. Data were analyzed and facial dimensions to be preferentially considered when designing a half-mask respirator for Korean workers were identified.
