Course objectives
Occupational medicine
This course explains the impact of work and working conditions on the health of workers, the prevention diagnostics, treatment, and medicolegal aspects of diseases caused or exacerbated by working conditions: occupational diseases, accidents at work, work-related diseases, occupational health services in the Czech Republic, aims and functions of an occupational health service, types of service
Functional diagnostics and rehabilitation
This course unit provides detailed information about key diagnostic functional tests in clinical medicine, all of which are conducted inside the lab. Students will be able to apply the basic concepts by conducting self-made examinations and recording their own physiological responses to exercise.
Students will understand main diferences between seniors and younger patients, especially in diseases diagnostics, specificities of objective findings, laboratory parameters and treatment targets as well.
Learning outcomes
Occupational medicine
Student knows occupational preventive measures including the evaluation of working ability, health risks of ionization, physical factors, industrial toxins. Student can describe basic obligatories of employers in relationship to employee, basic rules for evaluation of occupational diseases, risks of occupational diseases or risks of accidents at work. Student is able to describe the duties of attending physician, injuried eployee and employer in the event of accident of work.
Functional diagnostics and rehabilitation
After completing the course the student will know: principles of implementation, indications and contraindications of CPX (cardiopulmonary exercise testing) in clinical and outpatient practice (especially spiroergometric testing, basic principles of functional diagnostics of respiratory functions and investigation of autonomic nervous regulations), reactions of the organism to various types of exertion and the differences between the physiological and pathological reactions of the basic functional parameters to the physical load, the importance of prescribing exercise therapy in internal medicine, especially in patients with cardiovascular or respiratory diseases, and metabolic disorders, the importance of different training types for cardiac patients (phase I. - IV. of cardiovascular rehabilitation)
Student knows complex geriatric assessment Student is able to plan the diagnostics with regard to specific features of older patients Student is able to prepare the therapeutic scheme with regard to specific features of older patients Student is able to formulate the régime and diet measures with regard to specific features of older patients Student is abel to plan and assure the aftercare with regard to interdisciplinary syndromes.
