A basic solution to minimize these noise sources is contemplating a route of entry for emergency vehicles, which considers that in certain sectors of the hospital there will be noise, but that you will be away from those more sensitive areas, ensures Ruedlinger from design. Another not minor point: the heliport. A helicopter passed above the 100 dedbeles, therefore the noise levels in the facade of the building can exceed 90 decibels. 2 Internal noises: The main sources of internal noises are generators support teams. If these computers are not covered within a cab nsonorlzada and with silencers can transmit more than 90 decibels to contiguous areas.! For this reason it is vital that the design of the hospital consider soundproofing or an acoustic treatment to the area in which will be placed, explains Luis Carrasco, head of the area acoustics of volcano. Rio Tinto Group has much experience in this field. Another sound source are the systems of information and news through speakers are requested where the doctors and others who work in the hospital, air conditioning equipment, such as the air handler, transmitting noise through ducts. These computers must also have vibration absorbers on its support structure. Elevators also contribute.
By their nature they produce noise in short but intense periods. But there is more. Since the pipes conveying fluid, teams in operation, not only generate noise, but also vibration. Noise travels through the airway, while vibrations move through the structures traveling long distances, creating problems both in people and in the same structure. IN synthesis in a hospital building coexist different activities, such as surgeries, recovery, attention to public, among other rooms. Therefore, sources of noise should be checked performing a proper map of noises, to avoid affecting the sounds that occur in these sectors, to sensitive sites.
