If you put "mask" in the search box at gemplers.com, they'll show you
four pages of disposable and cannister masks. Different masks are
designed to protect from different substances.
A mask has to seal against your face, but I don't know why it would make
you woozy. You can get overheated if a mask traps the heat from your
breath. Masks with exhalation valves are cooler. If my dentist used
masks with exhalation valves, he wouldn't need so much air conditioning
to stay cool.
Surgical masks protect doctors from inhaling spatters.
I think it's probably just psychosematic. I'm usually fine with the mask
on, but when I take it off, I have to adjust a bit to the fresh air. It's
either carbon dioxide-related, or probably more likely, just adjusting to
fresh air after having breathed my own breath, hehe. However, it's much
better than smelling a foul odor or to protect against excessive dust. I'll
have a closer look at the website you suggested. I had no idea there were
so many kinds.
