Discusses flow of air between two rooms through an open door. Considers 6 cases with and without mechanical ventilation and with a temperature difference between the two rooms. Gives examples of the calculation of air flow. Recommends that for hospitals where the transfer of bacteria should be avoided, doors should be kept shut as much as possible and that it is not economically justifiable to choose such a high ventilation rate that no undesirable back flow occurs with the doors open.
