Project brief:

The main goal of the project is to implement, using newly acquired instrumentation, better practices of treatment of immature newborns into clinical practice and at the same time to create a top neonatological workplace with international prestige in education and research at the General Faculty Hospital in Prague. The project is implemented in partnership with the 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University.

The realization of the project itself (the so-called investment phase) will take place in one stage, the content of which will be the preparation of tenders for equipment suppliers, the selection of suppliers and the gradual delivery and installation of instrumentation. A total of 31 modern medical devices will be purchased.

The investment phase is followed by a five-year sustainability period, during which the planned results to which the VFN is committed must be met:

  • Professional publications according to RVV methodology
  • Creation of e-learning presentations on the use of methods in Czech and English

The goal will be to address the following research challenges:

  • New techniques and techniques in the stabilization and resuscitation of extremely immature newborns (so-called golden hour).
  • Optimization of Artificial Pulmonary Ventilation and its Influence on Volume Targeting Ventilation Morbidity.
  • Lung volume stabilization by non-invasive ventilatory support and effect on shortening and reducing the need for bi-level nasal CPAP.
  • Evaluation of the importance of functional echocardiography and near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) for the improvement of selective targeted treatment of circulatory disorders of immature newborns.
