Course objectives
To teach student clinically relevant examination methods and interpretation of their results in the context of physiology.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students should be able:
- to apply practically the methods used for examination of the functions of human organ systems.
- will be capable of interpreting the acquired records with respect to physiological processes taking place in human organisms.
- to derive and calculate other parameters and indices routinely used in clinical practice.
- to evaluate the results acquired both by measurement and by calculation, and to explain possible deviations.
