Overview

Credit: 6 PDH

Length: 62 pages

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are complex environments that require special attention to HVAC design. Hospital air conditioning assumes a more important role than just the promotion of comfort. In many cases, proper air conditioning is a factor in patient therapy; in some instance, it is the major treatment. Studies show that patient in controlled environments generally has more rapid physical improvement than do those in uncontrolled environments.

Poor IAQ can adversely impact the patients' and staffs' health, comfort and productivity. To build an effective HVAC system, maintaining the quality of air as well as designing for the efficient removal of foreign particles is a challenge. The filtration and building pressure control is the most important component of HVAC design.

This six-hour course briefly outlines the best practices for design, construction and maintenance of healthcare HVAC systems. This course contains some, but not all, of the criteria pertinent to the design of HVAC systems for hospitals and is not substitute for industry standards such as AIA, OSHA, ASHRAE, ARI, JCAHO, etc.

This course is applicable to architects, mechanical engineers, HVAC designers and others in the design and renovation of health care facilities.
