Mar 19, 2019 3:00pm ‐ Mar 19, 2019 4:00pm


Credits: None available.

Description

New studies show the relationship between indoor air quality and occupant health, not just occupant comfort. Sound evidence calls for new design and maintenance standards for acute medical and surgical care facilities, as well as for residential nursing and assisted living facilities. Come to this presentation to learn how to support occupant health using building design and indoor air management. Become a leader in improving employee productivity and student learning, and in alleviating the burden of acute and chronic diseases.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Identify the effect of dry indoor air on the human body, the microbiome of the built environment, and the transmission of disease-causing microbes.

2.) Review new research supporting the health benefits of balanced indoor-air hydration.

3.) Explain the value of using human physiological data as a metric for overall building health and operation.

4.) Participate in ASHE, ASHRAE, and FGI discussions on best-practice indoor humidification minimum and maximum levels for occupied buildings.
