Medical surgical masks must comply with YY 0469-2004 "Technical Requirements for Medical Surgical Masks". Important technical indicators include filtration efficiency, bacterial filtration efficiency and respiratory resistance:

1. Filtration efficiency: under the condition of air flow rate (30±2) L/min, the filtration efficiency of aerodynamic median diameter (0.24±0.06) μm sodium chloride aerosol is not less than 30%;

2. Bacterial filtration efficiency: under the specified conditions, the average particle diameter of (3 ± 0.3) μm of Staphylococcus aureus aerosol filtration efficiency of not less than 95%;

3. Respiratory resistance: Under the condition of filtration efficiency flow rate, the inspiratory resistance does not exceed 49Pa, and the expiratory resistance does not exceed 29.4Pa.
