Abstract: Hospital, healthcare facilities, machine shops, manufacturing and chemical processing facilities, and other commercial occupancies have diverse indoor environment due to the different comfort and health needs of its occupants. Currently, most ventilation studies revolve around specialized areas such as operating rooms and isolation rooms. This paper focuses on ventilation air distribution in hospital operating room, taking into account ventilation types, ventilation of operation room, important criterias and the importance of air distribution. As identified during the review, there are attempts to find the optimum ventilation air distribution for the hospital operating room. Therefore, it is highlighted that specific ventilation air distribution studies along with engineering criterias are required in addressing the ventilation requirements for the hospital operating room.
