A filter mask was a Federation breathing apparatus. It was capable of automatically eliminating all substances injurious to humanoid life, including both chemical and bacterial agents.
In 2269, James T. Kirk introduced the Troglyte population of Ardana to this technology, in an attempt to release them of the effects of mining zenite. (TOS: "The Cloud Minders")
