Intended learning outcomes

The student should have knowledge of technologies and systems for intensive care and therapy in highly specialized care. The course also enlightens problems related to monitoring of vital functions and their usefulness from medical and ethical perspectives. The following goals should be fulfilled:

  • Exemplify and demonstrate engineering skills regarding monitoring systems and their clinical applications in intensive care, anaesthesia and ventilation.
  • Be able to assess differences between technologies used and the physiological parameters measured during intensive care monitoring for adults, infants and fetus.
  • Define technical principles and applications of heart pumps.
  • Summarize the operating theatres design, equipment and organization.
  • Have knowledge regarding physical principles of tissue destructive methods in surgery.
  • Have knowledge of instruments and applications for endoscopic surgery.
  • Summarize applications in laparoscopic surgery, cardiothoracic surgery and neurosurgery
  • Be able to reflect on ethical aspects regarding intensive care and therapeutic systems based on ethical principles and Swedish law.
  • Exemplify risks and regulations for medical devices or medical technical products and summarize how to report incidents.

 

Course content

 

  • Intensive care: Technical systems and clinical applications regarding intensive care, anaesthesia, ventilation, monitoring of vital parameters. Examples of application: fetus and neonatal monitoring, intensive care stations, cardiac/heart pumps.
  • Therapeutic systems: Technical systems for minimally invasive surgery and their physiological background e.g. the operating theatre design and equipment, systems for navigation, simulation and surgical planning, endoscopic surgery, electro- and laser surgery. Applications from e.g. thoracic,- and neurosurgery.
  • Ethics and incidents: Ethical questions regarding intensive care, therapeutic systems, transplantation and incidents.
  • Example of project work: Endoscopic surgery, Heart assistive pumps, Anesthesia, Fetus- and labour monitoring, Neonatal care, Intensive care, Neuronavigation.
  • Laboratory work: The Ventilator, Electrosurgery.

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.
