Air purification technologies are clinically proven to improve patient outcomes in IVF procedures and surgical procedures. In order to better understand how purified air enters and moves through a healthcare facility, air quality modeling of in-room air purification is necessary. Specifically, the scope of this project aims to model how purified air or the addition of in-room air purifiers not only changes the air quality but also changes the movement of air within an IVF facility or procedure room. The air quality model will be developed using computation fluid dyanmic (CFD) softwareto visualize the air movement.
