Course objectives
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. Students will be capable of interpreting the acquired records with respect to physiological processes taking place in human organisms. Next, the students will derive and calculate other parameters and indices routinely used in clinical practice. Students will be able to evaluate the results acquired both by measurement and by calculation, and to explain possible deviations.
  • Red blood cell count. Estimation of haemoglobin concentration and of mean corpuscular haemoglobin. Estimation of blood group by slide method. Erythrocyt sedimentation rate. Estimation of osmotic resistance of red blood cells.
  • Examination of pulse by palpation. Blood pressure in man. Non-invasive methods of blood pressure measurements. Apex beat, heart sounds. Systolic time intervals. ECG record by means of personal computer. Ergometry. Measurement of pulse wave velocity. Sphygmography. Digital model of aortic function (a simulation program). Blood flow in veins.
  • Spirometric examination - Kroghs respirometer, Cosmed . Recording of forced vital capacity. Pneumography. Pneumotachography and estimation of airway resistance.
Teaching methods
The course is organized in the form of laboratory practices where students examine each other by given method, and they prepare the report from measured data.
Assessment methods
Credits are given on the basis of full attendance in practices and handling of all laboratory reports.
