Can the Shield be used during surgery?

The COVEX Shield is not recommended for use by the surgeon during surgery. The exhalation valve does not filter air exiting the mask. However, the exhalation valve can be taped shut and exhaled air will vent out of the filter media. This may increase humidity within the respirator, but that is similar to other surgical respirator masks.
