The course develops skills in the field of Clinical Pathology and aims to teach the student to apply, evaluate and interpret laboratory tests used in the study of the major diseases of the blood, coagulation and fibrinolytic system, alterations in hepatic and renal function and in the autoimmune disorders, in the diabete and in the liver and kidney disorders.
Knowledge of prevention and prophylaxis criteria of infections and possible therapeutic opportunities; pathology and pathogenesis of the main infectious agents involved in human pathology; paths of follow-up, diagnosis, and therapy; apply the knowledge of microbiology to human disease by systems or organs.
Laboratory analysis: definition, typology Collection and conservation of biological samples. Preanalytical, analytical and biological variability complete blood count test, plasma proteins and electrophoresis hemostasis tests, blood groups and compatibility testing, kidney function and urine tests liver function and hepatitis tests diabetes: diagnosis and therapy monitoring, autoimmune diseases, tumoral markers and myocardial infarction tests.
GENERAL PRINCIPLES of Clinical Microbiology: microbial ecology; pathogenicity and virulence; infection and disease; epidemiology of infectious diseases; nosocomial infections.
METHODS in Clinical Microbiology: Clinical Question and requests for investigation; direct and indirect diagnosis; sampling; elements of microbiological techniques; interpretation of the response.
CLINICAL MICROBIOLOGY: Aetiological agent, symptoms, clinical sample, prevention, prophylaxis, therapy, and diagnosis of infections of:
upper respiratory tract; lower respiratory tract; cardiovascular apparatus; gastrointestinal apparatus; hematopoietic apparatus; central nervous system; sexually transmitted diseases; urogenital apparatus; eye; ear, nose and throat; skin and mucous membranes; wound infections; bones and articulations; immunocompromised host infection; TORCH; diagnosis prevention and follow-up of HPV infections.
