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. 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.
  • Evaluation of nutritional state. Evaluation of sensitivity of respiratory centre to hypercapnia. Recruitment and summation in skeletal muscle. Blood pressure in man. Non-invasive methods of blood pressure measurement. Measurement of basic metabolic rate (BMR). Energy output in change of body position. Repay of oxygen debt. Calculation of energy expenditure. Examination of pulse by palpation. Ergometry. ECG. Blood flow in forearm (Pletysmography). Digital model of aortic function (a simulation program). Blood flow in veins. Apex beat, heart sounds. Systolic time intervals. Measurement of pulse wave velocity. Sphygmography.
