it is a great honour for me to invite and welcome you cordially to the joint international conference
which is organized by our treatment center and Czech Society of Hyperbaric and Aviation Medicine in coope-
ration with partnership scientific societies of neighbouring countries. We would like to continue in a tradition of
medical conference Ostrava’s Days of Hyperbaric Medicine. We decided for extension of conference format into
an international level as we would like to use our excellent relations with colleagues from other countries. Our aim
is developing of mutual cooperation in this field within common European territory and establishing of long-life
tradition of mutual meetings.
The conference is primary dedicated to representatives of our medical field- personnel of treatment hyperbaric
facilities, personnel providing fitness to dive examination for both professional and sport divers and personnel
of aviation medicine as well. Colleagues from other medical specialties obviously refering their patients to hy-
perbaric oxygen treatment are also invited. We particularly invite specialists from surgical and medical branches,
experts of forensic medicine, occupational medicine and experts providing wound healing as well.
In 2010 we will celebrate 45th Anniversary of opening of hyperbaric treatment centre in Ostrava, one of the earliest
centers from former Eastern European countries. This traditional medical center has been mainly developed by
wide range of excellent persons like surgeons doctor Sevcik, doctor Holek and doctor Mrazek senior and anes-
thesiologists doctor Dostal and doctor Krasova as well. We do not have to be ashamed also for current situation
of our treatment center. An extensive modernization of all technology, including medical, monitoring, controlling
and safety equipment have been finished in 2008. Due to general development of medicine, establishment of
independent medical specialty and many other aspects as well a change of organizational structure and creating
of separate department is scheduled after some decades. This is the only way how to ensure general, full-range
and justified development of department and providing of high-quality and safe services for our patients in accor-
dance with all norms and reccommendations accepted obviously in advanced countries of the world.
As location of conference a village of Velke Karlovice in the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy Mountains has been cho-
sen. The valley of Leskove is one of the charmest valleys within the entire region. We would like to propose you
high-quality level of scientific programme and wish you a nice time in this beautiful region. Refresh your power
for your further workload.
