Introduction<br/>Patient-ventilator asynchrony (PVA) poses a significant challenge in the management of mechanically ventilated patients, contributing to adverse clinical outcomes. Current methods of detecting PVA rely on visual assessment by clinicians, leading to subjectivity and inconsistency. Therefore, there is a need for automated...

Individualizing mechanical ventilation treatment regimes remains a challenge in the intensive care unit (ICU). Reinforcement Learning (RL) offers the potential to improve patient outcomes and reduce mortality risk, by optimizing ventilation treatment regimes. We focus on the Offline RL setting, using Offline Policy Evaluation (OPE), specifically...

Many patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) depend on mechanical ventilation due to conditions such as severe lung disease, traumatic brain injury, or postoperative coma. While mechanical ventilation is a potentially life-saving intervention, it also has harmful side effects. Especially in patients with lung disease, such as the acute...

An overview is given of the state-of-the-art of natural and hybrid ventilation in buildings in general. The focus of this paper is on boundary conditions for openable windows. As a case study the Co Creation Centre at the TU-Delft is discussed. Occupants live in their own houses and often in an office or other working environments as well. Due...

Background<br/>The operating room (OR) department is one of the most energy-intensive departments of a hospital. The majority of ORs in the Netherlands have an air-handling installation with an ultra-clean ventilation system. However, not all surgeries require an ultra-clean OR.<br/><br/>Aim<br/>To determine the effect of reducing the air change...

Patient-ventilator asynchrony is one of the largest challenges in mechanical ventilation and is associated with prolonged ICU stay and increased mortality. The aim of this paper is to automatically detect and classify the different types of patient-ventilator asynchronies during a patient's breath using the typically available data on...

Despite being a critical aspect in improving the building stock’s environmental performance and achieving the global environmental goals, the retrofit of traditional historic buildings is hindered by a lack of comprehensive guidelines tailored to their complex building physics and heritage preservation requirements. The conventional retrofit...

Critically ill, mechanically ventilated patients require a substantial amount of energy to meet their basic metabolic demands, as well as for their recovery, spontaneous breathing, gaining of strength, and weaning from the ventilator. It is important for patients to use their energy as efficient as possible at all stages of the disease and...

This paper investigates the potential of passively lowering the operational energy requirement of performance buildings in the Central European Climate. The energy consumption of this typology is largely caused by mechanical ventilation to cool and ventilate the theatre during shows, necessary for the thermal comfort and ventilation requirements...

Occupants are often unaware of window opening strategies that can enhance their well-being and reduce energy consumption. Window feedback systems that indicate when to manually operate a window have become a strategy for enhancing the indoor climate, occupant’s satisfaction and energy efficiency. These systems are recognized for providing the...

Introduction: In intensive care units (ICU), the most significant life support technology for patients with acute respiratory failure is mechanical ventilation. A mismatch between ventilatory support and patient demand is referred to as patient-ventilator asynchrony (PVA), and it is associated with a series of adverse...

The importance of air quality, especially humidity, temperature and CO2 levels, makes for the implementation of primarily mechanical ventilation techniques in modern-day swimming pools. Because it is believed that mechanically ventilated buildings have more accessible climate control abilities (Lévesque, 2015). However, with today’s climate...

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of ventilation was widely stressed and new protocols of ventilation were implemented in school buildings worldwide. In the Netherlands, schools were recommended to keep the windows and doors open, and after a national lockdown more stringent measures such as reduction of occupancy were introduced. In...

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) and ventilation, which researchers have been warning about for years. During the pandemic, researchers studied several indicators using different approaches to assess IAQ and diverse ventilation systems in indoor spaces. To provide an overview of these indicators and...

Throughout history, the human population has experienced major outbreaks of infectious diseases. In December 2019 the previously unknown SARS-CoV-2 virus emerged, which had a huge impact globally. Residents of long- term care facilities (LTCFs) showed to be highly susceptible to infection due to their frailty. Respiratory infectious diseases,...

Natural ventilation in a building is an effective way to achieve acceptable indoor air quality. Ventilation dilutes contaminants such as bioeffluents generated by occupants, substances emitted from building materials, and the water vapor generated by occupants’ activities. In a building that requires heating and cooling, adequate ventilation is...

The corona pandemic underlined a lack of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and<br/>ventilation. Consequently, to limit the spread of the virus, researchers explored several indicators that, through different approaches, assess IAQ and ventilation performance in indoor spaces. This paper gives an overview of those indicators and assessment methods used to...
