Some states require that the standards of Hill-Burton be met. ASHVE (American Society of Heating and Ventilating Engineers) 1958 The recommended ventilation rate for operating rooms is 8 to 12 air changes per hour using 100% outside air. Recirculating systems using 50% outside air and 50% return air are worth considering in some cases. The recommended ventilation rates for nurseries is 8 to 12 air changes per hour using 100% outside and no recirculation. Specific filter types and efficiencies are not mentioned.
