English Premier League's Chief executive Richard Scudamore announced that medical procedures would be reviewed following Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest.
Scudamore praised officials and medical staff for saving Bolton midfielder Muamba's life during the club's FA Cup tie at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
The level of care Muamba received after collapsing at White Hart Lane owed much to the fallout from the fractured skull suffered by Chelsea goalkeeper Cech five-and-a-half years ago.
Then Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho hit out at the delay in the keeper being transferred to hospital following his serious head injury during a game at Reading.
The Blues made an official complaint that led to an English Premier League and Football Association review, from which measures were introduced that included an ambulance being in place at stadia for the exclusive use of players and club doctors attending every game.
"Incidents and events shape policy, shape developments, shape progress," Scudamore said.
"What we will certainly be doing is looking at every aspect of what happened and if there are ways and means of improving, if there are ways and means of making it better in the future - just like we did in 2006-07 following the Petr Cech incident - we will do everything we can to make sure we reduce to the point of elimination, if we possibly can, things like that."
"There are no guarantees but we will do whatever we can to improve."
Scudamore admitted the Cech incident had been "a wake-up call" for the Premier League.
He added of Muamba: "It's been a difficult three days for everybody involved in the game, particularly those closest to Fabrice."
"The whole of the last three days, we've played out lots of scenarios, clearly."
"Let's hope, God willing, that the progress he's making continues to be made and that he makes as decent a recovery as he can."
"In some ways, his life, if it is saved - and let's hope it has been saved - is as a result of the things a lot of us put in place after what happened with Petr Cech."
"If you saw what happened on Saturday, the immediate attention, everybody comes out of this with huge credit, the referee, the match officials, the way the medics were there."
"Jose Mourinho made some strident comments about the treatment that Petr Cech got."
"Everything that we've put in place since helped Fabrice at least have a chance."
