  1. Summer School on Applied Respiratory Physiology

    Coordinating Department / Laboratory: Department of Intensive Care, Medical School University of Crete

    The course is directed to medical students who have completed the 3rd year of their studies and have taken courses on respiratory physiology and pathophysiology. The aim of the course is to provide an in-depth understanding of respiratory physiology and its implications in health, in exercise and extreme environments, disease, and mechanical ventilation.

    The hands-on sessions will allow students to visualize and comprehend the basic physiology and familiarize them with the use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing, polysomnography. Finally using a lung simulator the students will learn the basic principles of setting and adjusting a mechanical ventilator to support a critically ill patient with respiratory failure. All courses will be given by experts in adult respiratory and intensive care medicine.
