This talk presents a series of smoke visualisation/ tracer gas/ CFD studies on the same theme - to help reduce the risk of patient to HCW aerosol transmission within isolation rooms. The main findings can be used for new build hospital design or, where feasible, retro-fitting existing facilities. The talk ends with an example of a user-input aerosol transmission risk assessment model that was developed with CERN.
