ASHRAE’s Winter Meeting, held in conjunction with the AHR Exposition in Dallas, January 27-31, will feature three professional development seminars and 14 short courses. Among the offerings will be new educational courses designed to offer guidance to help designers create safe indoor environments in health care facilities.

Health Care Facilities - Best Practice HVAC Design Considerations and Criteria introduces design considerations. A major emphasis is on the necessary considerations for various diagnostic and treatment and support areas. Health Care Facilities-Best Practice Applications of HVAC Systems introduces best practice designs, with a focus on air distribution designs for surgical and patient rooms. Various control and energy efficiency techniques for cooling and heating plants are presented along with O&M and other commissioning topics.

Both courses are based on ASHRAE’s HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics. For complete course information and to register, visit www.ashrae.org/dallas.
