AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

-conoscenza di  Fisiopatologia,   manifestazioni cliniche, diagnosi e terapia delle forme acute e croniche di: cardiopatia ischemica, insufficienza cardiaca, valvulopatie, aritmie iper e ipocintiche

-Fornire agli studenti nozioni base in materia di cardiopatia ischemica (in particolar modo le sindromi coronariche acute), valvulopatie. Insufficienza cardiaca aritmie.

-Fornire agli studenti una generale comprensione di come fronteggiare i fattori di rischio cardiovascolare, di come prevenire insorgenza di cardiopatia ischemica e  insufficienza cardiaca, di come gestire un paziente con aritmie o valvulopatie

-introdurre tematiche relative a prevenzione prevenzione e gestione delle principali forme di cardiopatie

-far acquisire agli studenti le conoscenze riguardanti le principali patologie dell’ apparato cardiovascolare e sviluppare  negli studenti la capacita’ di insegnare ai  pazienti come prevenire l’ insorgenza di cardiolopatia ischemica e insufficienza cardiaca incrementando controllo dei fattori di rischio e con l’ attivita’ fisica .

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

know: the main notions on pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and therapy of cardiological pathologies

recognize: subjects with increased risk of developing pathologies of the cardiovascular system, to recognize the cardiological pathologies in place that need timely diagnosis and therapy

apply: the notions received to carry out adequate cardiovascular prevention and recognize cardiological pathologies in place or previous

critically assess: the cardiovascular risk profile of a subject, the clinical manifestations in case of cardiovascular pathology, make a thorough differential diagnosis

distinguish: between typical and atypical symptoms of cardiovascular diseases

compare: symptoms presented by the patient, make diagnosis and set therapy

classify: acute coronary syndromes (STEMI; NSTEMI; unstable angina), various arrhythmias, various forms of heart failure

design:  cardiovascular prevention strategies and be able to set differential diagnosis and appropriate therapies

describe analytically: how a subject with increased cardiovascular risk profile or with a cardiological pathology in action or previous

explain: what is cardiovascular prevention and what are the modes of onset of acute coronary syndromes, heart failure with preserved or reduced ejection fraction, arrhythmias with hemodynamic impact

infer:  in the presence of the symptoms what are the main causes of the same and formulate the diagnostic hypotheses 

TEACHING METHODS

frontal lessons

Any Student with documented Specific Learning Disorders (SLD), or with any special needs, shall reach out to the Lecturer(s) and to the dedicated SLD Representative in the Department before class begins, in order to liase and arrange the specific teaching methods and ensure proper achievement of the learning aims and outcomes.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

1: with the questions I aim to verify that the students have learned the concepts of pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases, that they know the clinical manifestations and the main diagnostic and therapeutic strategies of the various pathologies 

2: the first question is of a general subject, the following are more specific in order to allow to verify the knowledge but also the ability' to range from one topic to another and the capacity' of clinical deduction
