The article mentions flow rate without regard to room size

ASHRAE Standard 170: Ventilation for Healthcare Facilities recommends a minimum total of 20 air changes per hour and a minimum of 4 air changes of outdoor air per hour to properly ventilate the surgical suite.

The air change is based off room size. One air change is equal to the volumetric capacity of the room.

Any anecdotal comments elsewhere in the discussion will continue to be removed and our normal comment rules still apply to other comments.
