The Institute of the Aviation Medicine Prague (the IAM) is a diagnostic, therapeutic, advisory and training facility with a nationwide competence for both civilian and military personnel, with the possibility of providing a whole range of highly specific services exploitable by other patients and even healthy persons. The IAM performs:
- initial and regular medical examinations of flying staff personnel, air traffic control personnel and people involved in dangerous professions (divers, firemen, rescuers, paramedics, policemen)
- therapeutic and advisory activities related to military and civilian aviation personnel; parachutists, divers and air traffic controllers
- above-mentioned services are primarily aimed at making a speedy diagnosis, after-treatment, assessment of an examinee´s ability to execute his/her job and giving recommendations on preventive as well as therapeutic measures.
The above-cited services are provided by skilled staff, mainly to outpatients, but also by means of short-term hospitalization with frequently used methods requiring specialised equipment that is not in use in other clinical branches (hypobaric chambers, simulators etc.). According to time and economic points of view, concentration of all forms of activities to be conducted at one specialised facility (diagnostics, after-treatment and final advisory assessment) is regarded as more advantageous.
