||In this review of engineering controls that can be used to check the spread of tuberculosis in health care settings, types of ventilation and supplements to ventilation such as high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration and ultraviolet germicidal irradiation are addressed. Engineering controls for use during medical procedures that pose an increased risk for transmission of TB are specifically covered.
