OVERVIEW

The course aims to give an adequate framework on diseases that may arise sharply in the course of sports activities, particularly cardiac, respiratory and allergic, and such drugs is indicated in their treatment.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The interaction between the drugs and sports performance through the analysis of pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic profiles of the major categories of drugs, constitute the educational objective of learning module. They are covered important aspects of the performance-enhancing properties of the drugs and the problem of doping in general. In addition, the course contains basic elements of care in the field of medical emergency in the sport.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to provide students with the basics in sports medicine with particular regard to the most common acute diseases (anaphylactic shock, chest pain) and chronic (allergic and non-allergic bronchial asthma) that may arise during sporting activity above all at a competitive level, on BLS techniques and on doping drugs.

At the end of the course, the student will be able to recognize the symptoms and/or signs of the most common acute and chronic pathologies that may arise during sports practice, especially at a competitive level and to critically evaluate the involvement of other health professionals in the first place. place sports doctors or first aid (staff of 118 or hospital emergency rooms) in order to plan a diagnostic-therapeutic procedure appropriate to the individual case. The purpose of the course is to allow students of the degree course in sports science and techniques to know pathologies that could be encountered in the subjects that will follow in the course of their future work. The extension of the internal knowledge will allow future sports technicians to plan also an athletic path more appropriate to the individual case and to know the harmful effect of drugs doping.

TEACHING METHODS

The course is taught through lectures.

In case of certification of specific learning disability, disability or other special educational needs, please contact both the Department contact person, Prof. Nicola Girtler, and the lecturer at the beginning of the lectures to agree on teaching and exam methods which, in compliance of the teaching objectives, take into account individual learning methods and provide suitable compensatory/dispensatory tools recognized by the University SLD Student Service.
