The MAT proposes the following mathematically-derived Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) burn rate of per-patient/24hrs (under maximal conservation measures and recycling efforts):

  • Respirators (N-95 level or equivalent): 1.27
  • Gowns: 1.75
  • Eyewear/googles/face shields: 0.9
  • Gloves (all sizes): 8.6

These calculations were estimated for hospitals and do NOT include ambulatory, ambulance services, skilled nursing facilities etc.
