Course objectives
The aim of the course is to understand to the necessary extent the principles of devices used in medicine and their application in practice, including the safe use of these devices.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students should: * Understand, to the extent necessary, the principles of methods and devices used in medicine with an emphasis on the profession of nutritional therapist * recognize the potential risks associated with the use of certain medical devices (mechanical, electromagnetic and light character, ionizing radiation) * be familiar with the principles of safe use of these devices, both for patients and healthcare professionals * list the risks of ionizing radiation, its effects on the living organism, * describe the radiation protection system, principles for applying radiation protection requirements and practical methods of protection
