Advanced Testing Method to Evaluate the Performance of Respirator Filter Media

Qiang Wang, Laleh Golshahi and Da-Ren Chen

1. The peak particle penetration through respirator file media in actual applications is the same as that rated. True or False?

2. What type of particles is used in the Title 42 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 84 for testing the filtering facepiece respirator media?

Occupational Exposures to New Drycleaning Solvents: High-flashpoint Hydrocarbons and Butylal

Diana M. Ceballos, Stephen G. Whittaker, Eun Gyung Lee, Jennifer Roberts, Robert Streicher, Fariba Nourian, Wei Gong and Kendra Broadwater

3. There is an occupational exposure limit for the new drycleaning solvent “butylal.” True or False?

4. Exposures typical of a dry cleaner shop using a new drycleaning machine with the high-flashpoint hydrocarbon drycleaning solvent are likely to be above existent occupational exposure limits. True or False?

James M. Boiano and Andrea L. Steege

5. Funnel-fill systems are more common in older anesthesia machines compared to newer ones. True or False?

6. Use of high flow followed by low flow anesthesia was more commonly reported by respondents administering anesthetic gases to adult patients compared to those administering them to pediatric patients. True or False?

Assessing the Efficacy of Tabs on Filtering Facepiece Respirator Straps to Increase Proper Doffing Techniques While Reducing Contact Transmission of Pathogens

Amanda L. Strauch, Tyler M. Brady, George Niezgoda, Claudia M. Almaguer, Ronald E. Shaffer and Edward M. Fisher

7. Select the answer that best follows the CDC recommended order of PPE doffing.

8. Which version of the N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirator (FFR) used in this study reduced the transfer of fluorescent contamination from the hands to the neck and head areas of the study participants?

Effects of Boundary-Layer Separation Controllers on a Desk-top Fume Hood

Rong Fung Huang, Jia-Kun Chen, Ching Min Hsu and Shuo-Fu Hung

9. A desktop fume hood installed with appropriately designed flow boundary-layer separation controllers will present significantly lower leakage levels at lower suction flow rate when compared with those without boundary-layer separation controllers. True or False?

10. Reduction of the leakage levels of a desktop fume hood with the boundary-layer separation controllers is because the dispersions induced by the boundary-layer separations on the leading edges of the side plates and work surface, as well as the three-dimensional complex flows on the upper left and right corners of the hood face, are effectively alleviated by the boundary-layer separation controllers. True or False?

12. Substitution of 2,3-pentanedione for diacetyl is actually preferred over other controls. True or False?

14. Nearly 4% of standardized 8-hr TWA measurements exceeded the 85 dBA Recommended Exposure Limit established by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. True or False?
