    Air Traffic Control: The Complex World of Temperature, Humidity and Airflow in Surgical Services – David Schurk


    As healthcare professionals, we go to great lengths to make sure that our Operating Rooms are safe and that the sterility of medical devices is maintained to prevent harm to patients. What if, after all that effort, the culprit for spreading illness is actually your HVAC system? A potential breeding ground for biological growth, mold and mildew, the design of your HVAC system takes on a critical role in the Operating Room. On this week’s episode of Beyond Clean, we talk to HVAC expert, David Schurk, about a topic that has been top of mind for healthcare professionals everywhere in recent months- MOLD! and all things temperature, humidity and airflow in surgical services that help minimize infection and keep staff comfortable. Tune in now to this timely and thought-provoking interview.

    Season 7 CEs will be packaged at the end of the season in a single mega-quiz that includes all eight episodes. The quiz will be released through our newsletter and social media pages along with episode 8 later this season.
