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.
