  • Indoor environmental quality and infection control in surgery rooms: code requirements vs. performance motivation. A critical review 

    Cubí Montanyà, Eduard; Salom Tormo, Jaume; Garrido Soriano, Núria (2014-08-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Surgery rooms are a space type with particularly stringent indoor environmental quality (IEQ) requirements (large airflow rates and narrow comfort windows), which translate into high energy use. Due to the unclear IEQ and ...
