Discover the effects of frame-based lateral tilt during ISICEM 2021

Based on 8 years of research

  • Respiratory failure is always challenging and requires a systemic individualized approach to each patient supported by appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic technologies.
  • 8 years of comprehensive foundational research on the effects of regional changes of lung mechanics in different body positions, resulted in innovation in mechanical lung ventilation – use of Automatic Lateral Therapy (ALT) guided by Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) for Continuous and Individualized Ventilatory Care.
  • Visit our team at ISICEM to find the latest findings about continuous individualization of ventilatory care based on targeted patient´s repositioning guided by real-time and personalized radiation-free monitoring. Together with state-of-the-art medical technologies, the world premiere of the brand-new ICU bed MULTICARE X in combination with latest EIT monitoring system from Timpel.

Speakers & LINET Team

Marcelo Amato, Prof., M.D., Ph.D., initiated his medical studies in 1980 at the Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo, with a specialization in Pneumology and Intensive Care Medicine at the Pulmonary Division of the Hospital das Clínicas. In 1996, he successfully finished his doctoral post-graduation. In 1996 and 1997, Dr. Amato finished Postdoctoral training in Minneapolis, working at the Lab. of Prof. John Marini and in Rotterdam, with Prof. Lachmann. In 2008, he obtained his professorship at the University of São Paulo, Pulmonary Department. His main areas of research are Protective Mechanical Ventilation, Electrical Impedance Tomography, Technological Solutions for Mechanical Ventilation.

Mikulas Mlcek, M.D., Ph.D. is a Deputy Director of the Experimental Physiology Lab and the Head of the Medical Simulation Center for the First Faculty of Medicine at Charles University in Prague. He graduated from Charles University where he obtained a Ph.D. from the Department of Physiology. His thesis topic was based on computational modeling of the cardiac electrical field and excitation-contraction coupling. Since then, Dr. Mlcek´s scientific interest has moved to experimental physiology focusing on interactions of the cardiopulmonary system. The major research models that he has been using over the past 10 years include acute respiratory distress (ARDS), extracorporeal membranous oxygenation (ECMO) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He has published over 35 papers based on his research in scientific journals. As an Assistant Professor, Dr. Mlcek lectures and runs seminars and labs in Human Physiology. In addition, he helps design and run specialized post-graduate courses aimed at ventilation therapy and trauma management in the Medical Simulation Centre.

Michal Otahal, M.D., Ph.D. is a Head of the Intensive Care Unit in the Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care for Charles University and General University Hospital. In 1998, he graduated from the Third Faculty of Medicine at Charles University in Prague. He then started practicing medicine in the Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine for the Faculty Hospital Královské Vinohrady (FNKV) and moved to his current position in 2007. Dr. Otahal is also engaged in research concerning critical respiratory failure therapy and positioning.

Jan Michalek is a Marketing Product Manager for ICU portfolio at LINET since 2020. After graduating at the Biomedical Engineering faculty at Czech Technical University has gathered more than 10 years of experience in the product management and development of medical devices.
