Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The graduate of the subject extends and assembles the spectrum of knowledge about diseases and syndromes and gets to know in details the new or experimentally discovered patomechanisms leading to the damage of the physiological functions of cells, organs and systems. It focuses on the current knowledge about the metabolic disorders, the internal environment, the adaptation mechanisms for the environmental influences and diseases of the organism. The knowledge gained will be used in the future to study other profile nutrition-oriented subjects.
Course contents:
The introduction to the pathophysiology. Disease and health. General ethiopathogenesis of diseases and risk factors of diseases (alcohol, smoking, physical, chemical and biological influences). Pathophysiology of stress. Shock - types and its characteristics. Pathophysiology of the immune system. Inflammation - acute and chronic, systemic inflammatory response of the organism, MODS, septic status, fever. Disorders of water and electrolyte metabolism. Acidobasic equilibrium disorders. Pathophysiology of heart and circulatory system - heart failure, lipid metabolism disorders, atherosclerosis, hypertension, IHD (CAD) risk factors, myocardial infarction, cerebral ischemia. Pathophysiology of breathing - respiratory insufficiency, hypoxia. Pathophysiology of nutrition disorders - obesity, malnutrition and eating disorders. Pathophysiology of gastrointestinal tract. Pathophysiology of liver and pancreas. Pathophysiology of the excretory system and kidneys. Pathophysiology of the endocrine system - neuroendocrine management of the organism, diabetes mellitus and its complications. Aging. Pathophysiology of the CNS. Pathophysiology of the pain.
