  1. 1. Effects of Art and Design on Orientation in Healthcare Architecture : A study of wayfinding and wayshowing in a Swedish hospital setting

    Författare :Muna Ibrahim; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; health-care architecture; hospital design; interior design; public art; wayfinding; orientation; affordance; familiarity; wayshowing; heterogeneity; temporality;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the role of interior design elements, especially artwork, in way-searchers’ wayfinding and orientation in hospital environments. The thesis considers the way-searcher’s background and the impact of cultural belonging, occupation, memories, aesthetic preferences, and language, and the influence that such factors might have on the perception of the hospital environment and its guiding elements.

  2. 2. The visible patient. Hybridity and inpatient ward design in a Namibian context

    Författare :Catharina Nord; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :architectural theory; hospital design; healthcare building design; inpatient ward design; hybridity; embodiment; illness and disease; illness experience; patient-focused design; patient-centred design; healing environment; therapeutic environment; gl; Vårdarkitektur; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Even if one is confident that the staff provide the bestpossible treatment, being admitted into hospital is still astressful situation. In recent decades, architecturalresearchers have elaborated on aspects of the patient'sperspective where the design of the physical environment maypositively enhance the healing experience. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Den fysiska vårdmiljöns påverkan på vårdpersonal och patienter på operationssalar och intensivvårdsavdelningar

    Författare :Maria Berezecki Mårtensson; Chalmers University of Technology; []

    Författare :Sasan Sadrizadeh; Sture Holmberg; Christian Poelma; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD ; Ventilation System; Hospital Operating Room; Bacteria Carrying Particle; Surgical Site Infection; Colony Forming Unit; Airborne Particle Control; Air Quality; Thermal Comfort; Active-Passive Air Sampling methods; Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD ; ventilationssystem; operationssal på sjukhus; bakteriebärande partikel; infektion i samband med operation; kolonibildande enhet; kontroll av luftburna partiklar; luftkvalitet; termisk komfort; aktiva-passiva provtagningsmetoder för luft; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Sammanfattning : The history of surgery is nearly as old as the human race. Control of wound infection has always been an essential part of any surgical procedure, and is still an important challenge in hospital operating rooms today. For patients undergoing surgery there is always a risk that they will develop some kind of postoperative complication. LÄS MER
