Prerequisites

Anatomy and Physiology

Intended learning outcomes

The course aims at giving physical description of pressures and flows in i.e. the circulatory and respiratory system and knowledge about corresponding measurement techniques. Specific goals from an engineering point of view are to:

  • Formulate and apply fluid dynamics theories and models of the circulatory system in health and disease
  • Utilize theories of respiratory physiology, gas exchange, and respiratory diseases
  • Assess and utilize techniques for pressure measurement, blood flow assessment and gas flow analysis
  • Generalize theories and measurement techniques for pressures and flows to other physiological systems

 

Course content

Circulation: Hemodynamics, measurements and clinical applications, fluid mechanics in the circulatory system, models of the circulatory system.
Respiration: respiration physiology, respiratory disease and measurements.

Teaching and working methods

The course comprises lectures, demonstrations and laboratory work

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
