There is currently no specialist in the CR field of study that would provide comprehensive training in respiratory therapy, which includes a qualified assessment of the patient, care and treatment of artificial ventilation in cardiorespiratory failure system states with depression or pharmacological inhibition of neuromuscular transmission.


Knowledge of anatomy, physics, physiology, biochemistry, pathophysiology and pharmacology.

Syllabus of lectures:

Deepening knowledge of the anatomy of the respiratory and circulatory system.

Special physiology of breathing: ventilatory mechanics, lung volumes, pulmonary circulation, gas exchange, regulation of ventilation.

Blood gases, acid-base balance.

Respiratory failure, pathophysiology, impaired ventilation, distribution of ventilation, diffusion, perfusion, ventilation-perfusion, changes in FRC, compliance, resistance, lung water.

Techniques for airway management.

Tracheal intubation, tracheal intubation technique, indications, complications.

Koniopunkce, koniotomie, tracheotomy, tracheotomy techniques, complications.

Care of tracheotomy, the exchange cannula, monitoring of cuff pressures in obturation, removal od cannula, complications, long cannula.
