Course Description

Based on the ASHRAE book HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics, this course introduces many unique and up-to-date healthcare design considerations and applications. The course covers Chapters 1-4, 6-11, and 13-16. Common medical terminology is introduced, and terminology differences between the medical and engineering fields are examined. Infection particles and their transport mechanisms are covered, followed by infection control methods. A major emphasis is placed on the necessary considerations for various diagnostic and treatment and support areas. The second half of the course focuses on air-distribution designs for surgical and patient rooms. Various control and energy efficiency techniques for cooling and heating plants are presented along with O&M and other commissioning topics. Smoke control and life safety best practices and application issues finish the course.
