Synopsis:

Physical processes related to blood flow, measurement of haemodynamic parameters in vivo, properties of blood vessels. Special attention will be given to artificial capillary systems and their application in treatment of renal or lung insuficiency. The students will learn how to measure blood pressure under various degrees of load and they will observe their own ventilation parameters. Theoretical knowledge will be complemented by practical experience from excursions.

Requirements:

Assessment: attendance and activity during exercises.

Examination: Knowledge of material from lectures and exercises.

Syllabus of lectures:
Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Physical units in medicine, uncertainty of measurements and its errors

2. Blood pressure measurement.

3. Ultrasound flowmeter.

4. Peristaltic pump.
