|MODULES||This unit is composed by:|
The course provides the principles of pharmacodynamics and kinetics, in particular of antibiotics, and it will focus on the therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM). The main aspects of infectious diseases, their prevention andtheir transmission will be treated. The main anti-infective drugs will be described, addressing the aspects inherent to sensitivity and diagnostic tests. Finally, the laboratory techniques applied to the first intervention and the essential clinical semeiology will be described.
Know the principles of general pharmacology: • pharmacokinetic parameters • biological monitoring • drug-induced alteration of laboratory parameters • drug interactions • modes of transmission of infectious diseases • prevention of infectious diseases. Acquire notions: • of diagnostics (culture, molecular, microscopic) • of antibiotics and evaluation of sensitivity tests • of the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of antibiotics (killing, post antibiotic effect) and blood dosages. Acquire knowledge on the application of laboratory techniques to primary and essential clinical semeiology.
