There were no statistical differences by training modality for either mask regarding ease of fit or success of fit.<br /><strong>Conclusion:</strong> There were no differences among video presentation, small group demonstration, and self-directed slide show just-in-time training modalities for ease of fit or success of fit N-95 respirator mask fitting. Further study is needed to explore more effective fit training modalities.</p>}, number={4}, journal={American Journal of Disaster Medicine}, author={Jones, MD, David and Stoler, MD, Genevieve and Suyama, MD, Joe}, year={2013}, month={Sep.}, pages={283–286} }
