Harm

Hypoxemia & hypercapnia

Hypoxemia and hypoxia is reduced oxygen levels (deoxygenation) in the blood.
Hypercapnia is increased CO2 levels in the blood.
Both are detrimental to our health and can kill when taken too far.

Increase in clinical illness (CI) and influenza-like illness (ILI).

Bacterial and fungal pneumonia

The moist mask environment is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and fungi which are inhaled and cause lung infections.
