Room Ventilation & Airborne Disease Transmission In A Healthcare Setting

Ventilation is used extensively in healthcare facilities for primary patient treatment in operating rooms, intensive care units and isolation rooms. It is also installed to ensure compliance with quality assurance of manufactured items in pharmacy and sterile supply departments and to protect staff from harmful organisms and toxic substances, for example in laboratories.  In general, proper ventilation is there to help ensure the comfort of the occupants of buildings. Specialized ventilation in a healthcare setting will also provide comfort but its prime function will be to closely control the environment and air movement of the space that it serves in order to contain, control and reduce hazards to patients and staff from airborne contaminants. This course explores the affect that proper room ventilation can have on airborne disease transmission.
