The Faculty of Biomedical Engineering of the CTU and the Karlovy Vary Region Ambulance Service have been cooperating for several years in the field of education of future paramedics, providing them with the opportunity to practice at the ambulance bases and the medical operations centre. The Memorandum of Cooperation signed on 5 October 2021 by the Dean of the FBMI, Prof. MUDr. Jozef Rosina, Ph.D., MBA, and the Director of the KVK Ambulance Service, MUDr. Jiří Smetana, expanded the portfolio of cooperation in the field of research.

After the signing ceremony, the meeting continued with representatives of the Department of Health Sciences and Population Protection on the topic of research activities focused on monitoring vital signs of patients in the field and the use of telemedicine. Other areas of possible future research were also discussed, which could fundamentally influence the current approach to technology in pre-hospital emergency care.
