Inpatient ward. anaesthesiology and resuscitation


MUDr. Jan Vrabec

Station nurse

Mgr. Jaroslava Vargová, MBA

The ward has 8 beds equipped with modern lung ventilators and monitors.
We accept patients after traumas - most often we deal with chest, lung and heart contusions (protective ventilation, bronchoscopy, positioning of patients in pronation position), traumatic PNO and haemothorax (drainage, surgical revision), spinal fractures in all stages (stabilization), pelvic and limb fractures, as well as conditions after abdominal cavity injuries.
Of course, there is good cooperation with consiliary surgeons, traumatologists, imaging methods (CT, ultrasound, X-ray) and biochemical and haematological laboratory are well available.
The second group is patients with sepsis and multi-organ failure. We also admit complicated patients after major elective surgical procedures, cardiac and otherwise compromised (neurological, endocrine, chronic renal insufficiency, etc.), post-CPR conditions.
Haemodynamic monitoring by various methods, artificial pulmonary ventilation including frequently used non-invasive pulmonary ventilation are routinely used. It also includes the care of patients with renal dysfunction, whether acutely arising in the context of organ dysfunction in sepsis, after traumatic shock, crush syndrome, as well as patients with chronic renal insufficiency.

Resuscitation team

It consists of doctors and nurses of the ARO.
It provides acute resuscitation care in the whole hospital area.
A special telephone line is used to call it.
The team is equipped with special mobile equipment necessary to provide extended cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Visiting hours at the department. ARO:

Monday-Friday: 3 - 5 pm 
Saturday-Sunday: 3 - 5 pm

Visits outside of these hours are only possible by appointment with the attending physician.

Giving information: unless otherwise specified by the patient, information about the patient's health condition is given by the attending physician only to relatives during a personal visit to the ward.

Anaesthesiology Department

Head doctor

MUDr. Jan Vlasatý

Station nurse

Petra Velebová

The anaesthesiology department provides anaesthetic care, i.e. painless and safe performance of therapeutic and diagnostic procedures in our hospital.
Number of anaesthesiologies performed / year ... 5500
Availability of anesthesiology care is 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
Anesthesia is performed in 6 operating rooms and 3 outpatient departments. Operating theatres are equipped with modern anaesthesia machines with advanced monitoring units that allow continuous invasive measurement of haemodynamics and lung mechanics
We use a full range of modern anaesthetics and muscle relaxants in general anaesthesia. We administer regional anaesthesia - spinal, epidural, including continued epidural anaesthesia as well as a full range of peripheral nerve blocks.
In indicated cases we use combined techniques - general anaesthesia combined with peripheral nerve blockade.
The range of surgical procedures includes trauma, orthopaedic, urological, thoracic and abdominal surgery.

Are you going to have surgery?
Please remember to bring your own with you to the hospital:

  • results of pre-operative examinations, (the scope of pre-operative examinations will be communicated to you by your outpatient doctor)
  • it is advisable to take reports from the doctors you are regularly monitored by (internist, cardiologist, pulmonary doctor, neurologist)
  • if you have a pacemaker or cardioverter, a card for that device and a report of its regular check-up
  • regularly used medicines - in the original packaging (not in a dispenser) - the packaging may be open
  • a completed anaesthetic questionnaire - which you can get in the outpatient clinic or see the link below
  • if you have a serious illness, the outpatient doctor will order you to the anaesthesiology outpatient clinic

Anaesthesiology ambulance

Ponávka 10, 1st floor, ambulance No. 7
tel. 545 538 399

Monday - Friday 10.00 - 12.00

The anaesthesia ambulance is used to prepare patients at risk for anaesthesia.

A number of chronic diseases and medications you take significantly affect the course of anaesthesia and surgery. To prepare you well for anaesthesia and ensure your safety, we need to know what diseases you are being treated for, what medications you are taking and your general health. This is what the internal pre-operative examination is for. However, this examination is not always sufficient and needs to be supplemented by other targeted examinations. That is why we try to prepare patients with serious illnesses or complications from previous anaesthetics for surgery in our anaesthetic outpatient clinic. You will be referred to it by the physician who is scheduling you for surgery. This will be about 5 days before your admission to the hospital.

Please bring to the anesthesia clinic:

  • Internal preoperative examination
  • The results of any other tests that your internal or general practitioner will perform on you
  • If you regularly see any specialists (e.g. cardiologist, pulmonologist, neurologist, haematologist, nephrologist, endocrinologist) then please bring the latest reports from your visits to these doctors. These reports contain important information about your health and may be relevant to anaesthesia. Often we do not need to repeat the additional examinations unnecessarily.
  • If you have been admitted to hospital in the last year then please bring your discharge report if you have one.
  • If you have a pacemaker or cardioverter, bring the report from your last check-up at the pacemaker clinic.
  • An accurate list of the medications you are taking, including the exact dosage.
  • Completed anaesthesia questionnaire - download here

It may happen that your doctor will not be able to perform all the examinations in time, then please call 545 538 470 and the nurse will give you a new appointment in the anaesthesia clinic.

An experienced anaesthetist will be at the outpatient clinic to assess your condition and decide whether you are fit for anaesthesia. Alternatively, he or she will discuss with you which examinations need to be completed before surgery.

Our goal is:

  • that a patient who is admitted to the hospital is ready for surgery, so that further tests do not have to be completed and the surgery delayed
  • that the anaesthesia team is properly prepared in time for a complicated patient (special equipment, drugs, etc.)
  • to discuss anaesthetic options with the patient and calmly select the most optimal type of anaesthesia

Urgent admission

It is organized by a system typical for German countries - by calling the whole team at the same time (2 anaesthesiologists, surgeons, traumatologists, anaesthesiology and surgery nurse, auxiliary staff).
This system ensures that the patient's vital functions are secured in the shortest possible time, i.e. within minutes, rapid diagnosis and, if necessary, immediate transfer to the operating theatre for acute surgery. Invasive approaches and simultaneous sonographic examinations are possible in the reception room.
