Abstract:

The Design Criteria for Shipboard Medical Spaces, August 1976, present in drawings and text the functional design requirements of the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery for the following types of shipboard medical spaces Surgical Gas and Equipment Room and Surgical Machinery Room Scrub Room and Substerile Area Audiometry Room and Medical Linen Issue Room. This technical report takes into account the existing equipment limitations and shipboard constraints. Using the present state-of-the-art as a baseline, an outline of an R and D program will be developed. Accomplishment of such a program is expected to reduce or to eliminate, in future ships, the effects of the existing equipment limitations and shipboard constraints. This R and D program will be developed as the design criteria are worked out and will be incorporated in the final report. Additionally, these design criteria are intended to assist the Naval Sea Systems Command in designing and building shipboard medical spaces which will most efficiently and economically accomplish their purpose. They embody arrangements of modern types of equipment, which take advantage of recent advances in techniques and equipment design and, at the same time, require a minimum of space. It is expected that they will provide a rational basis for the usual structural and arrangement drawings. In so doing, they will effect a much-needed standardization. Author
