Respiratory Mask Fit Test

Bluestar Diagnostics understands how to conduct a test, recognize invalid tests, and properly clean and maintain equipment for a respirator mask.

Did you know that fit testing for a respirator mask is required by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and is crucial to respiratory safety?

Tight-fitting respirators must seal to the wearer’s face in order to provide expected protection. This includes disposable respirators (also called “filtering facepieces”). Therefore, OSHA requires fit before a user wears a mandatory respirator on the job, and must be assessed at least annually. In addition, fit tests should be performed:

  • Whenever a different size, style, model or make of respirator is used.
  • When any facial changes occur that could affect fit, such as significant weight fluctuation or dental work.

Pulmonary Fit Test

Bluestar Diagnostics are certified in performing Pulmonary Fit Test. Pulmonary function tests are a broad range of tests that measure how well the lungs take in and exhale air and how efficiently they transfer oxygen into the blood.

Understanding The Bluestar Diagnostics Pulmonary Fit Test Process
Our technician will have the individual breathe into a mouthpiece that is connected to an instrument called a spirometer. The spirometer records the amount and the rate of air that is breathed in and out over a specified time. Some of the test measurements are obtained by normal, quiet breathing, and other tests require forced inhalation or exhalation after a deep breath.
