Annotation -
Students will learn about several areas in the course of Clinical Laboratory Diagnostics. The main topic is understanding of physiological and patho-physiological features of basic parameters with a focus on the relationship between biochemistry, physiology and a given disease.In the next part the methodological approaches used in human diagnostics will be explained. A detailed description of analyzed molecules, which are used in the current medicine according to the function of these molecules - such as enzymes, fats, hormones, etc will be given in the next part. For each category the function and the use for diagnostics will be explained. The last part of the study focuses on the diagnostics of liver, kidney, and the diagnosis of the internal environment of the organism, including acid-base balance.
