LQB508 Clinical Physiology and Pathophysiology

LQB508 Clinical Physiology and Pathophysiology is an advanced unit that will build upon your existing knowledge of disease processes and practical skills gained in LSB111, LQB388 and LQB488.  This unit will give you an in-depth understanding of the pathophysiology of a wide range of diseases/disorders with particular emphasis conditions identified as areas of national health priority by the Australian National Medical Health and Research Council (NHMRC) such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and metabolic syndromes. The lecture content is complemented by case study workshops and the practical component, which will assist you in developing the technical skills required to perform a number of important clinical physiology techniques (including EEG, ECG, and spirometry) as well as understanding the significance of the physiological variables that they report. Critical evaluation and communication of complex pathophysiological research data is also a key component of this unit.
