The purpose of this study was to determine if facial dimensions for a group of subjects were predictive of the fit factors measured while one brand of half-mask respirator was worn.
Fit factors and 12 facial dimensions measured on 30 female and 38 male subjects were analyzed by congelation coefficients; weighted, multiple linear regression; and discriminant analysis.
Data were analyzed for all subjects, gender subgroups, a race subgroup (whites only), and race/gender subgroups.
