The department is located in the IAM building in the Central Military Hospital area, Praha – Střešovice
- Aeromedical training of flight and airborne personnel (according to NATO standards) for basic unfavourable influences of the air ambience (methodical measure of the IAM´s director)
- Demonstration of altitude effects on man in hypobaric chambers (lack of oxygen – hypoxia, sudden changes in barometric pressure, pressure breathing and simulated G-stress) including theoretical training and testing of flying skills following the previous state of inability
Demonstration of air ambience effects on the teaching process requirements
- Medical faculties and nursing colleges students
- Participants in training courses and functional training
Demonstration of the influence of the altitude (low pressure) on the performance of sportsmen, mountaineers and a possible training preparation.
Flights on TL-39 and GYRO IPT II Flight Simulators
Training exercises with routine flights tasks, plane crashes and in-flight space disorientation for pilots (of L-159 and Z-142 aircraft, and a helicopter).
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Oxygen therapy of patients in a hyperbaric chamber (usually at least 90 min at the pressure of 0.15 MPa, repeatedly by the indication, for policy holders according to the Decree of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic)
- various disorders caused by insufficient supply of blood to the limbs
- cases of sudden perceptive loss of hearing
- some select post-injury states
- chronic inflammation of bones
- and a number of other diseases
Information leaflet for patients to download here (format MS Word, size 52 kB).
- Examination of some functional abilities and skills of divers in a hyperbaric chamber (up to 80 metres´depth)
- Expert opinions in selecting and testing of flying clothing and instruments, the possibility of testing products (from the air excess pressure of 100 m of the water column up to the altitude of 30 000 m of the atmosphere).
- Investigation into air accidents
