Licensed Medical Professionals turn to Henry Schein as their source for surgical masks.

Henry Schein Medical is a leading distributor to health care providers, and does not sell or distribute product to non-medical professionals or the general public.

Explore the various surgical masks and mask dispensers we carry below:


An excellent quality surgical mask can reduce exposure to blood and other bodily fluids with a 99% filtration fluid resistance. In today's medicine, a surgical mask is a necessary respiratory and contact precaution.

Our surgical mask and mask selection includes the following:

  • Ear loop masks
  • Surgical and procedure masks
  • Barrier extra protection masks
  • Masks for sensitive skin
  • Fluidshield Particulate Filter Respirator masks
  • Mask/shield combinations
  • Surgeon anti-fog masks
  • Fluid-resistant molded masks
  • Economy molded masks
  • Disposable shields and Op-d-Op face and visor shields
  • Polysoft visor kits
  • Coverall total facial shields

In addition to our Private Brand Surgical Mask, we sell only the highest quality surgical masks made from top reputable manufacturers in the medical industry, such as:

Guidelines & Recommendations for Medical Mask

Selecting the appropriate surgical mask for a particular procedure is a critical component of your Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) protocol. Although surgical masks may look similar, each surgical mask has notable differences affecting the performance and level of fluid resistance and particle filtration. Understanding the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) performance level of each surgical mask can help make the selection process easier and ensure your mask will provide the appropriate protection to minimize the spread of potentially infectious diseases.

Medical Surgical mask Standards and Regulations

Specifications developed by ASTM are referenced by the FDA as the required standard in the USA. The current standard ASTM F2100-11 specifies the performance requirements for Medical Masks with five basic criteria:

  • Fluid Resistance of Surgical mask represents the mask's resistance to penetration by synthetic blood under pressure (mmHg). It measures the ability of a mask's material construction to minimize fluids from traveling through the material and potentially coming into contact with the wearer. The higher the fluid resistance (filtration), the better the protection.
  • BFE (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency) represents the percentage of aerosol particulates filtered at a size of 3 microns. It is the measure of the efficiency of the mask in filtering bacteria passing through it.
  • PFE (sub-micron Particulate Filtration Efficiency) represents the percentage of submicron particulates filtered at 0.1 microns. PFE is the measure of the efficiency of the mask in filtering particles passing through it. The size of the particles filtered is critical.
  • DELTA P (Differential Pressure) represents the pressure drop across the mask or resistance to air flow in mmH2O/cm2. This determines breathing resistance — the higher the Delta P, the less the breathability, but the better the filtration.
  • FLAME SPREAD is a ranking derived by laboratory standard test methodology of a material's propensity to burn rapidly and spread flames.
