All day long I have cool air blowing on my face creating positive pressure. Outside the hood, there is lower pressure. Air is going through the filter, through the hose onto your face, and that differential in pressure is what is stopping the air from the room from coming into your hood. That is also why it doesn’t require a tight fitted seal like the N95.”by Dr. Whitney Bowe
