Abstract

The role of the surgical mask during COVID-19 pandemic is undoubtedly very vital in preventing infections. A review of the evolution of the face mask from the animal bladder of the past to the present N 95 is being done with an emphasis on the importance and problems currently faced by the surgical community due to constant wearing of N 95 mask in the hospital. Though N 95 mask is the ideal mask during Coronavirus pandemic, there are a few issues like carbon dioxide retention and headache which is hampering its prolonged use.
