• EFFECTIVE ISOLATION ROOM FOR COVID-19 PATIENTS USING CFD

    Year 2020 has started with a ill starred severe acute respiratory virus (SARS-CoV-2)” and disease named as COVID-19, creating massive pressure on healthcare infrastructure as well as on healthcare management globally with each passing day. It has been observed that COVID-19 spread between people through close contact. There is neither vaccine nor specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19. To reduce transmission through air there is an immediate need of “Isolation Rooms” in the area of highly populated densities. This blog will discuss “how we can examine contamination extent with a convenient ventilation strategic design using CFD analysis”. During designing HVAC systems for the isolation rooms, CFD evaluates air flow patterns and…

  • Using BIM to Transform Healthcare Industry

    BIM in health infrastructure examines the application and implementation of BIM technology in the planning, design and construction of health infrastructure. The inclusion of BIM within an internationally accepted framework of this highly illustrated reference book applications case study organizations, the main challenges for the implementation of BIM in healthcare to navigate how to motivate and train staff to overcome resistance to change and the development of the business case.
