Abstract

Air quality, temperature control, and air movement directly affect infection control, comfort, and safety in critical care units. This article explains basic concepts in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning that affect patient care. Functional requirements must be determined early in the design process and discussed with clinicians, engineers, and architects to assure understanding and correct design.
