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.
This course briefly outlines the best practices for design, construction and maintenance of healthcare HVAC systems.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
