but instead is split into three systems, we are striving to
bring these three strands together through our Academy
of Neurointensive Medicine. We hold regular workshops
and training courses in neurocritical care for physicians
from all over the Czech Republic. The world renowned
neurocritical care specialist Associate Professor Dr.
Raimund Helbok (Pic 6), Department of Neurology,
Innsbruck Medical University, has twice been guest
speaker at these events, where he gave workshops on
multimodal neuromonitoring, and we are planning his
third visit for November 2018. On April 30 2018, we
held a workshop on safe mechanical ventilation led by
Professor Marcelo Amato MD, PhD, from São Paulo,
Brazil, who is the world leader in this field.
The Liberec neurointensive care unit already has
the highest quality and the best equipment in our
country, and through the Academy of Neurointensive
Medicine, we shall support the further development of
neurocritical care in the Czech Republic.
