AbstractFundamental principles of human medicine, Basic Life Support (BLS) and introduction to histology and microscopy.
ObjectiveAfter completion of the course, the students:
- have a basic understanding of elementary building blocks and processes as a basis for human medicine, e.g. cell structure and cycle.
- know basic terminology of anatomy.
- understand the process of medical care from first aid to rehabilitation.
- understand the advantages and disadvantages of emergency diagnostics, especially ultrasound.
- know the basics of microscopy and histology.
- have learned the basics of Basic Life Support:
- recognize the symptoms of cardiovascular arrest.
- alarm in an emergency according to the situation.
- If available, they organize an AED and use it correctly and as quickly as possible.
- perform sufficient chest compressions on the phantom.
- perform effective ventilation on the phantom using a pocket mask.
- will identify possible ventilation complications. Under certain circumstances, they will not attempt further ventilation.
- will identify the limits of cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
- under stress, they do not risk their own or other "helpers'" lives.
ContentBased on a complex clinical case, students are familiarized with the course of medical care from initial treatment to rehabilitation. Basic terms, modules and processes are introduced. In addition, the students experience the basics of imaging techniques, especially ultrasound.
The students complete the Basic Life Support course. After this training sequence, all participants should be able to initiate resuscitation measures in private and in-hospital settings.
The students experience learning, teaching and working in the hospital sector as a social process and teamwork in which all senses and a wide range of skills are needed.
In addition, the students experience in three workshops the basic process of a physiotherapeutic intervention with the concepts of clinical reasoning, therapeutic aspects and therapy progression.
An intensive course in microscopy/histology enables students to perform microscopy independently and to understand histological sections of a histological sample, but also online.
