Program Overview

Program Description:

Our resuscitation unit focuses on complex diagnosis and treatment in patients whose dangerous health conditions are caused by the corruption of their vital functions. These patients require the maximum available level of healthcare.

Only with us you know your department and the mentoring team even before you apply. What does one of our mentors – ARU nurse Marcela - say about your placement schedule and patient cases to observe?

„You will spend a part of my 12-hour shift with me and follow me everywhere. I will show you the basic nursing job tasks such as the re-application of bandages, managing decubitus, breathing and motional rehabilitation, as well as patient hygiene in multiple ways, according to the individual case. We provide examinations as well as diagnostic procedures - bronchoscopy, CT, MRI, ultrasound, insertion of invasive inputs, and the preparation and dilution of medicine. You may see various types of medical techniques – ventilators, defibrillators, injectomats, perfusors, and devices for cooling or heating the patient. The hospitalization of a patient includes an income box and also resuscitation and ensuring the main vital functions. Apart from these procedures we must provide CPR for the whole building for adults in the University Hospital in Motol.“
