Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the subject is to focus on special medical technology. The benefit of the subject is acquiring knowledge and understanding of the principles, techniques and use of these devices. The course supplements the basic knowledge about medical electrical devices in the field of biomedical engineering.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs


The subject is focused on special medical technology - microscopic, endoscopic, dental, infusion and hemodialysis technology. Another block of topics is focused on operating theater equipment, sterilization technology, ARO and JIP technology, gynecological, neonatal and pediatric techniques and techniques. Conclusions include the issue of blood centers and genetics, as well as the technical means of medical education of physicians.
