Description

Air pressure relationships are a trending topic in health care, both for regulatory surveys and patient well-being. This session will provide a practical understanding of how ASHRAE Standard 170 affects health care facility operation and design. Diagrams and illustrations will show how Standard 170 requirements take shape in a health care facility. Topics will include air pressure relationships, building systems, equipment location, and room functions, with special attention given to spaces where pressure requirements are particularly critical.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify how the language of Standard 170 applies to real-life scenarios in health care facilities.
  • Take practical steps to verify compliance with Standard 170 and be prepared for surveyors performing tissue tests.
  • Describe the impact room names can have on the design, operation, and compliance of spaces.
  • Explain to leadership or clients the steps necessary to achieve and/or maintain room pressures.

Speaker(s):
