Course objectives
The objective of the practical exercises and seminars from pathological physiology is to provide students basic idea about pathological states and experimental work. Students will also acquire practical skills necessary for their subsequent(future) study and work.
Learning outcomes
Student will explain the pharmacological options affecting the secretion of gastric juice in the context of experimentally induced gastric ulcer in experimental animal model (inhibition of proton pump, H2 receptor blockade);
Student will explain the pharmacological options affecting the secretion of gastric juice in the context of experimentally induced gastric ulcer in experimental animal model (inhibition of proton pump, H2 receptor blockade);
Student demonstrates the principle of load test (oGTT) in an animal model of experimentally induced diabetes (alloxan);
Student shall identify clinically relevant parameters describe nutritional status (calorimetry, BMI, WHR index, the weight, the skin-fold thickness, bioimpedance, DEXA) ;
Student demonstrates the examination of the quality of the skin barrier, through the examination of resistance and conductivity of the skin or a chemical (Burckhardt´s) examination with regard to the composition of the skin barrier;
Student demonstrates onset of obstruction icterus induced by ligation of ductus choledochus. He understands etiopathogenesis of other types of icterus (hemolytic, hepatic) and diagnostics of them using heme metabolites in urine, blood and stool using mitochondrial/cytoplasmatic membranes liver enzymes;
Student describes etiopathogenesis of venous thrombosis using data from experimental animal model;
Student will explain the importance and principles of DNA d iagnostics to detect I/D polymorphism using PCR methodology ACE

Teaching methods
practical exercize in lab, seminars Practical training (about 20 % of the total volume of teaching) is complemented by a comprehensive range of simulation teaching methods on virtual patients.
Assessment methods
P> Practicals are compulsory (the only permited reason for not attending is a student's sick leave). Students can be given written tests or individual home work by tutor's throughout the term. Student's participation in the practicals throughout the term is certified by a credit given upon the following conditions: (i) complete attendance, (ii) complete protocols from the exp. practicals, (iii) indicidual criteria announced by the principal tutor.
