Achieving Net Zero Using Hybrid Ventilation Approaches

There is a new guidance due to be released around the deployment and use of HEPA filtration within the healthcare environment. This will lay out a basis whereby equivalent air changes per hour (eACH) can be utilised by engineers to provide part of the total air changes per hour for ventilation (ACH). Recirculation of air has always been problematic under Htm03 and this new guidance will lay out the basis on how this can be achieved. The proposed talk is aimed at CP, AP, AE etc ventilation to lay out information around how filtration is tested and can be evaluated. This will expand on information contained within the new guidance, which it is expected will be released by HCE2023. The talk will also cover comparisons between mobile and fixed systems using generalised case studies. The objective will be to give attending engineers the basic information they require to safely assess, deploy and maintain filtration units within their built environments. It will close laying out how these approaches can be successfully utilised to aid in the delivery of net zero.

They use the information gathered to complete an action to improve system management, whether that’s automated flushing of pipe work, or making data driven small adjustments to water flows on a circulating hot water system.

3 key learning points –

1. What is hydronic balancing
2. Effects of getting it wrong
3. Benefits of digital water management solutions

A Bold New Way to Disinfect Hospitals

Connor and Josh will provide an introduction to how cutting edge AI and Robotics technologies can help with infection control and air quality challenges improving operational efficiency, sustainability and reducing capital cost of new build and refurbishment projects. The presentation will include a case study of a trail of this technology where Joanne Taylor, Consultant Nurse and Deputy Director of Infection Prevention and Control at RCHT, commented: “The robot has definitely improved things for patients as the reduced downtime means we can get more patients seen in a day, while maintaining the highest standards in environmental cleanliness. Based on time savings made during the trial period, we estimate that its use could enable as many as 2,400 additional procedures a year which would have a very significant effect on reducing the waiting lists.”
