Share This

Course Length: 6 hours

This training covers general and specific requirements of HVAC design of all hospital rooms including airborne infectious isolation rooms, protective isolation rooms, operating rooms, emergency departments, Intensive Care units, pharmacies, psychiatric and sterile processing departments, and infection control risk assessment are all covered, making this course essential training for anyone designing healthcare facilities.

This course addresses the role of HVAC systems in reducing Hospital Associated Infections (HAI), explaining airborne vs contact transmission. Through filtration, air patterns, air changes, dilution, temperature, humidity, UV, and pressurization the hospital HVAC can either help or hinder efforts to reduce HAI.

Best practices of HVAC design and the complexities of designing renovations in operating hospitals for concerns such as phasing, utility shutdowns, and infection control risk mitigation are introduced. As well as the why and how of each of the different processes from the perspective of particle physics, including hospital psychrometrics, air changes requirement, level filtration and more.

Latest available technology in the design, calculation, and practical applications of HVAC and controls are introduced. The training also defines the ventilation system design requirements as per Standard ANSI/ ASHRAE/ ASHE 170-2017 including the compliance requirements. Systems and equipment include outdoor ventilation, air distribution systems and energy recovery and all ancillary components of ducting, insulation will be described.
