WARNING

Mask use is contraindicated only in patients, their spouses, caregivers and household members who are in close proximity to mask users and are wearing metal medical devices/implantable metal objects that may be affected by magnets. .

These masks may continue to be used according to the instructions and updated labeling if patients or persons near the patients do not have implantable metal medical devices or metal objects in the body.


What is a contraindication or warning?

A contraindication is a condition in which the device should not be used because the risk of use clearly outweighs any possible benefit. A warning is used to alert patients to a situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury. Additionally, a warning may describe serious adverse reactions and potential safety risks. In summary, a contraindication tells the user when a device should not be used, and a warning tells the user how to avoid sources of danger when using the device.
