Clinical physiology of respiration and respiratory diseases
Dr. Horváth Ildikó
The Mechanisms of Normal and Pathologic Functions of the Circulatory System
SE Elméleti Orvostudományi Központ, Hevesy György előadóterem
Course director: Prof. Benyó Zoltán, Zoltán Lohinai, MD, PhD (email@example.com)
In addition to the course directors, recognized experts of some particular topics will also be invited as guest lecturers: Dr. András Bikov (ESRS Somnologist, Consultant in Respiratory Medicine, Manchester University), Dr. Adrienn Halász, Dr. Zsuzsanna Csoma, Dr. Bikov András, Dr. Szabolcs Sótér, Dr. Miklós Zsiray.
The course aims to strengthen the translational clinical knowledge on basic physiological principles related to respiration. We aim to increase the critical thinking and understanding of the latest research results integrated with academic discussion with leading international experts to prepare students' ability to adapt to innovative healthcare challenges. We also provide an overview of the COVID-19 pandemic from the frontline and aspects of comorbidities. Furthermore, Ph.D. students gain knowledge of translational research's critical steps and planning to increase their understanding of biomarker and drug developments using future research methodologies in this field. During the course, we summarize the essential aspects of cardiorespiratory adaptation through sports activities. The respiratory disease changes provide integrated information about the most critical respiratory disorders' physiological and pathophysiological background in light of cutting-edge research.
