- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is only offered to the students of the study fields the course is directly associated with.
The capacity limit for the course is 50 student(s).
Current registration and enrolment status: enrolled: 23/50, only registered: 1/50
- fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
- Course objectives
- Goal of these lessons is to enlarge students´ knowledge in selected physiological topics with partial overlap to pathophysiology and with elucidation of the clinical use of basic physiological knowledge.
- Learning outcomes
- Student should be able:
- to discuss aspects of physiological events at various organizational levels (e.g. cell death, circadian rhythm, highest function of the nervous system);
- to consider physiological aspects of some pathologies (e.g. arterial hypertension, ischemic heart disease, inherited arrhythmias);
- to describe study methods of cardiovascular physiology at various organizational levels (e.g. analysis of variability of circulatory parameters, recording of action potentials and ionic currents in cardiac cells, mathematical modelling of cardiac cell function);
- to consider the role of reactive oxygen species, cytoskeleton function and sigma receptors in physiological processes;
- Glandula pinealis, circadian rhythm; The highest functions of nervous system – psychological and socials aspects; Cellular movement, function of cytoskeleton; Physiology of cell senescence and cell death; Methods of experimental cardiology ; Role of reactive oxygen species in physiological processes; Physiological aspects of major cardiovascular pathologies: arterial hypertension, ischemic heart disease ; Sigma receptors: history, function, clinical consequences; Cardiac action potential and underlying ionic currents: methods, physiology and selected pathologies; Mathematical modelling in physiology; Evaluation of variability of circulatory parameters; Examination´s technique in cardiology
