Program: Airborne Contaminant Control in Healthcare Environments (Brian Monk - UTC)

Eligible for 1 NYS PDH

Health Care facility air conditioning plays an important role in patient therapy by controlling airborne microorganisms, viruses, and hazardous chemicals that may be present in the indoor environment. The nature of the health care environment requires that special attention at the design stage be considered to limit air movement between departments, dilute or remove air borne contaminants, and recognize that temperature / humidity conditions may vary in areas within the same building.

Health Care HVAC designers must consider the control of airborne infectious disease, room pressure relationships, and Outdoor Air Requirements (ASHRAE Standard 62.1) to meet Health Care Facility IAQ concerns. Complicating the dilution strategy are ASHRAE Standard 90.1 guidelines calling for higher efficiency in LEED/ High Performing Building Design. The presentation will focus on infection sources, control measures, air movement and proper filtration techniques that can be designed into the building’s air handling system. An overview of anti-microbial construction techniques as they apply to dedicated outdoor air systems will also be discussed.
