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. Members of NVT are radio amateur operators of the “Poor Wave” radio club and they communicate at 430.300 MHz FM with CTCSS 107.2 Hz; reachable also via OK0BC or OK0K (with EchoLink as well) repeaters.

NVT on the rope

During last weekend, a part of our team used experience in caving and single rope technique. We repaired windows that are accessible only from outside of the building. As we run a “Licensed course for instructors of speleology and speleoalpinism”, we have all the necessary equipment at the faculty.


And the weather was good, the wind was calm and the building was high enough to have fun.
