Hospitals represent a particular challenge for air conditioning and ventilation technologies. Along with clinical concerns, the main priority is hygienic cleanliness in sensitive areas such as operating rooms or intensive medicine. Air conditioning is crucial for physiological reasons.
A good room climate helps patients to recover quickly and creates important working conditions for employees, e.g. during an operation.
An optimal room climate is created by restricting the level of germs in the air in areas that need to be particularly protected such as operating theatres and the instrument table. Ensuring the required air flow between the rooms is also very important. Furthermore, restricting the narcosis concentration and other substances as well as removing thermal loads in order to create the best room temperature is vital.
