Non-conventional Ventilatory Team (NVT)
Our research is aimed at all aspects of artificial lung ventilation: theoretical analyses, modeling, design of respiratory care equipment, animal ventilatory experiments, clinical trials and education in respiratory care. We are focused especially on High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation (HFOV), heliox and Electrical Impedance Tomography in respiratory care. NVT is based at Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Biomedical Engineering.
The most important national TV channel CT1 (Czech Television 1) and also its news channel CT24 reported about our avalanche and breathing-in-snow experimental research. The CT1 reporter Mr. Martin Tiburec with his TV team visited our research in situ at the mountain cabin Bumbalka/Pirchanka in Špindlerův Mlýn, Krkonoše mountains.
Here is the link to the main evening “Daily News” at CT1 news,
and the same video was also broadcasted at CT24 evening news.
Here are some pictures from the “movie shooting” :-):
An interview about about our avalanche snow research activities (breathing under the avalanche snow) was broadcasted in several major radio stations in our country—ČR Radiožurnál, ČR Plus and ČR Dvojka:
Here is one of the versions (unfortunately, it is in Czech):
Audio: Radiožurnál: o lavinách (FBMI ČVUT).
The research was commented on by one of our top meteorologists Alena Zárybnická in the main Czech TV:

There are some other reports in national newspapers (all coming from one single original message):
The 8th annual RESPIRATORY DAYS conference will be held at Bumbalka, Labská u Špindlerova Mlýna, Krkonoše Mts. (Find the place), on September 4–6, 2019.
The preliminary book of abstracts from Respiratory Days 2018 can be downloaded here.
(For members of FBMI CTU only: The conference will immediately precede the BioŠrot and ParaŠrot training courses. Biošrot, Parašrot will take place at the same place, starting on Saturday, September 7, 2019.)
