    OVERVIEW

    Intense sport training produces physiological modifications that may aggravare preexisting pathologies.Trainers should be able to recognize any sign of traumatic injuries  or endocrine, metabolic and respiratory dysfunctions.Furthermore they should be aware of beneficial of sport-linked pharmacological therapies and the toxicity of their abuse.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course of sport-integrated medical sciences is aimed to prepare athletic trainers and motor rehabilitation personnel. To this purpose, teaching of endocrinonogy, sport medicine, respiratory tract diseases and pharmacology offer a comprehensive view on how physical activity should be adjusted on individual physiopathologic caracteristics focusing also on individual predisposition to develop sport-related pathologies. Students will also be teached on the importance to recognize properly pharmacologic therapies that, although required to follow training or rehab path, could induce disease by themselves, if misused.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course of Sport-Integrated Medical Sciences aims to teach atletic trainers and physical rehabilitation personnel  to qualitatively and quantitatively adjust training demand (muscolar, osteo-articular, aerobic and metabolic), according with athletes or patients status of health. To this purpose, students will be prepared to learn physiology of endocrine system, the most frequent phenomena of its alteration and how they negatively reflect on metabolism and endurance. They will learn to recognize symptoms, causes and consequences of traumatic injuries that sportsmen could face to, the diseases affecting the respiratory tract and therapeutic properties, side effects and abuse consequences of sport-related pharmacological therapies. Learning outcomes for each teaching that compose the course will be further detailed into the specific sections.

    PREREQUISITES

    The comprehension of the topics addressed by the learning of  medical sciences integrated in sport requires adequate knowlwdge of cellular biochemistry, baic aspects of  physiology and anatomy of  skeletal, muscolar, respiratory and cardiovascular systems and the mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of these disorders that may typically affects athletes and may become targets for pharmacotherapy. 

    TEACHING METHODS

    Theaching of all sections is to be followed as frontal lessons.

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    Section of endocrinology: Endocrine system physiopathology and its interaction with sportive and rehabillitative activity. Section of sport medicine: Sport-related traumatology, emergency and BLS procedures, methabolic pathologies and sport. Section of respiratory tract diseases: Spirometric parameters, restrictive and obstructive conditions of respiratory tract, asthma, exercize-induced asthma, BPCO. Section of pharmacology: Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic, therapy of inflammation and pain, therapy of respiratory tract diseases, drug abuse in sport doping.

    More detailed programs are reported in the specific sections.

    RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

    The texts, recommended to integrate the subjects are detailed into specific sections

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Exams will be held in the classroom and will comprehend written and interview on the same day  On unige website (auleweb section) the details about exams procedures will be provided to students. Written parts will be held in form of a quiz on sports medicine and disorders of the respiratory system. These will be followed by interview on topics of endocrinology and pharmacology. Votation will be obtained as average of the four sections.   

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    Interviews will be conducted to assess the acquisition by the students of the capacity to define the main features of pathologies that affects caddiovascular, respiratory and endocrine system and kwow indications and side effects of the  drugs used to control the course of these diseases and the related symptomatology. Student' capability to integrate different aspects of sport-related pathologies, such as causes, interaction with physical activity with pharmacologic therapy will be regarded worthy of highest score
