Today afternoon, two of our colleagues became associate professors (“doc.” degree—it has NOTHING to do with Microsoft Office documents :-) ). They defended their habilitation theses at a meeting of the Scientific Committee of the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering. They are Martin Rožánek (in the picture on the couch), a member of our NVT; and Jana Vránová, a statistician closely cooperating with us in research.

Congratulations!

The 4th annual “Respiratory Days” conference will take place at Bumbalka, Labská nr. Špindlerův Mlýn, Krkonoše Mountains, on September 9-11, 2015 (Wednesday to Friday). All topics related to respiratory care and research in respiratory techniques and medicine are welcome.

If you consider an active participation (i.e. having a presentation or a lecture), please contact any member of our team as soon as possible.

The program for RDs 2015 is presented here:  Pozvánka na SVK Respirační dny 2015

Attendance at the conference including accommodation and food is free of charge if you deal with respiratory care or research in this field; otherwise, a conference fee of CZK 2 150.– applies (includes the accommodation, food, the book of proceedings, social events and all the conference services).

Here are the proceedings from the last Respiratory Days in 2014: Proceedings-Respiratory-Days-2014.

(For members of FBMI CTU only: The conference immediately precedes the BioŠrot and ParaŠrot training courses starting on Saturday, Sep 12, 2015.)

New article added:

ASL 5000 lung model fails to simulate preset mechanical parameters during HFJV and volume control ventilation with a decelerating flow waveform in some ventilators

Invited lecture:

The path between an idea to success

by

Tom Bachman
Lake Arrowhead, California, USA

Goals:

  • Introduce a method to evaluate an idea and understand the barriers to success
  • Provide an example in the context of a biomedical technology (automatic control of the inspired oxygen of sick premature infants)

The lecture will be given on May 27, 2015, at 10:00 a.m.

The 4th annual “Respiratory Days” conference will take place at Bumbalka, Labská nr. Špindlerův Mlýn, Krkonoše Mountains, on September 9-11, 2015 (Wednesday to Friday). All topics related to respiratory care and research in respiratory techniques and medicine are welcome.

If you consider an active participation (i.e. having a presentation or a lecture), please contact any member of our team by June 15, 2015.

The last year, the invited lectures were aimed at mechanical ventilation during anesthesia and at physiological effects of mechanical ventilation. In 2015, the two invited lectures will be aimed at practical aspects of mechanical ventilation in neonates (including HFJV) and ventilatory strategies in adults with ARDS (including HFOV).

Attendance at the conference including accommodation and food is free of charge if you deal with respiratory care or research in this field; otherwise, a conference fee of CZK 2 150.– applies (includes the accommodation, food, the book of proceedings, social events and all the conference services).
