Abstract

A previously published study recommended the daily use of visible smoke to test for negative air pressure in isolation rooms occupied by potentially infectious tuberculosis cases. Continuous monitoring devices were found to have poor reliability. Findings from our survey of engineering controls in acute-care hospitals within New York State support this recommendation.
