Appendix 17 - Aerosol Generating Procedures (AGPs) and post AGP Fallow time (PAGPFT)

This appendix lists the procedures that classed as AGPs and the time required after an AGP is performed to allow the aerosols still circulating to be removed/diluted.  This is referred to as the post AGP fallow time (PAGPFT) and is a function of the room ventilation air change rate.
