The course develops the initial knowledge in the field of biophysics and human physiology and applies it to the problems of instrumental medical technology. In particular, the course deals with the principles of operation and current possibilities of technology in medicine. The content is chosen to be sufficient for understanding and mastering the issues in subsequent courses. The course deals with diagnostic devices, devices for monitoring and evaluation of vital functions, therapeutic devices, including equipment for specialized departments such as ICU, operating rooms, etc.
