Our “breathing-in-avalange-snow” experiments are popular in Czech newspapers

Published

Our NVT team’s research on gas exchange of a victim of snow burial is very popular in Czech press. The research is unique because of the close cooperation of several bodies involved, needed to properly assure the exact and sound research:

  • Faculty of Biomedical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague;
  • Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces of the Czech Republic, Czech Army;
  • Charles University, Faculty of Physical Education and Sport;
  • Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague.

The research is conducted in a close cooperation with the Czech Society for Mountain Medicine.
