Course objectives
The student should know the basic physical examination and functional tests in cardiology, should interpret ECG and recognize important arrhythmias. He/she must be able to describe basic examination in cardiology. He/she must be able to describe signs and symptoms of the most frequent cardiovascular disease, like hypertension, ischemic heart disease, myocardial infarction, arrhythmias, pulmonary embolism, peripheral artery disease, cardiogenic shock, syncope, pulmonary oedema, aortic aneurysm. He/shy must know the basic pathology of congenital and acquired valve disease, endocarditis, myocarditis and pericarditis. He/she must know the cardiovascular pharmacology as well as non-pharmacological treatment including pacing, resynchronisation and defibrillation. He/she must be able to describe the methods in invasive cardiology and cardio surgery. He/she must know the cardiovascular risk factors and to describe the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis.
