Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to: to understand physical (thermodynamic) principles of some physiological processes (blood circulation, respiration, origin of memebrane potentials; to understand principles of selected diagnostic devices used in general medicine; to recognize possible risks connected with their use; to understand the effects of ionising radiation on living matter
Learning outcomes
At the end of course students will be able: to measure some basic biophysical quantities in correct way; to understand physical (thermodynamic) principles of some physiological processes (blood circulation, respiration, origin of memebrane potentials; to understand principles of selected diagnostic devices used in general medicine; to recognize possible risks connected with their use; to understand the effects of ionising radiation on living matter
