Ventilation is necessary for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality and minimizing adverse health effects in the built environment. Ventilation can also be used as an engineering control to reduce occupant exposure to airborne infectious aerosols. How much ventilation does a building need, and how do owners, operators, and occupants know if it is provided? This session will cover the fundamentals of indoor air quality and important metrics for evaluating ventilation system operation; tools and strategies, from CO2 meters to tenant Q&As, that can be used by engineers and occupants; and field validation methods for engineering controls in a healthcare facility.

Chair: Meghan McNulty, PE

Technical Committee: 4.3 Ventilation Requirements and Infiltration
