US FDA Clears Kimberly-Clark Face Mask Designed For Children

WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared a face mask designed for children that is made by Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB), the agency announced Wednesday. The FDA said the mask is the first pediatric single-use mask meant for use in hospitals and health care facilities to help reduce the spread of airborne respiratory tract bacteria and viruses. The mask is designed to fit children ages 5 years to 12 years, and is designed with material to accommodate children, who do not breathe as forcefully as adults. "Children are not small adults," said Susan Cummins, chief pediatric medical officer in the FDA's device division. "This pediatric face mask helps fill an unmet need for medical devices that are specifically designed for children's unique anatomy and growing bodies." The FDA said performance tests reviewed by the agency showed that air flow and filtering ability of the mask were appropriate for children. The mask includes specific fitting instructions for the adult who assists the child in using the device. Adult supervision of any child wearing a face mask is an important safety recommendation. The mask should not be used on patients showing signs of shortness of breath, chest pain, chest pressure, dizziness, or confusion. -By Jennifer Corbett Dooren; Dow Jones Newswires, 202-862-9294; jennifer.corbett@dowjones.com
