Synopsis:

The course is focused on medical devices and equipment and medical imaging systems. The aim of the course is to present to students basic principles of typical medical devices. A content of the course is prepared so that student can understand topics with medical devices within the further courses. The course covers diagnostic and therapeutic medical technology together with imaging modalities. The student will know basic technical parameters of typical medical devices used commonly in the clinical practice. The course covers categorization of the medical equipments, devices for measurement of blood pressure, measurement of bioelectric heart activity (ECG) - electrocardiograph, monitor of vital signs, measurement of bioelectrical activity of the brain (EEG) – electroencephalograph, measurement of bioelectric activity of the muscles (EMG) – electromyograph, electrosurgical units (ESU), cardio-stimulators, defibrillators, equipment of anesthesia care units, lung ventilators and basic concepts of imaging systems, X-ray, CT, SPECT, PET a US systems. The overview of the methods used in radiotherapy is also a part of the course.
