PHYSIOLOGY MODULE 2 - APPLIED PHYSIOLOGY OF HYPOXIA AND HYPERCAPNIA- repeated
Overview of physiology sessions
The sessions are designed to improve understanding of physiological and pathophysiological concepts as detailed below. They will consist of seminars, case study discussions, hands-on physiology demonstration and interactive Human Patient Simulator (HPS) demonstrations. The balance of activities in each of the four sessions will vary according to the topic being considered.
Teaching sessions will normally run from 14.00 – 17.00
Physiology 2: Applied physiology of hypoxia and hypercapnia
- Factors affecting delivery of oxygen to the tissues
- Respiratory cycle, lung volumes and dead space
- Oxyhaemoglobin dissociation curve
- Ventilation/perfusion matching
- Applied Physiology of Hypoxia and Hypercapnia (Biomedical TL E4.13 HPS)
- Demonstration of vitalography and spirometry (Biomedical TL E4.13 HPS)
- Respiratory Simulation (Biomedical TL E4.13 HPS)
Compulsory for all CT1s and CT2s. (including LATs) ie do the module once in your two years of training.
Each module for physiology is run twice/repeated to allow choice for attendance. Please only book one option for each module.
Self-registration online via the University of Bristol’s Blackboard Collaborate system.
Physiology teaching is to support learning for ISCP curriculum and for MRCS examinations. Emphasis is given to continuing professional education rather than ‘coaching’ for the MRCS examinations.
4 physiology modules are delivered on Tuesday afternoons.
Physiology teaching are linked by dates.
A record of attendance will be kept by the Deanery. Attendance details are provided to your Programme Directors and will be assessed at the yearly ARCPs. Certificates will be provided for each module to trainees, who attend, for their portfolio.
Trainees will be asked to provide anonymised feedback on each module. This is important for the School of Surgery to ensure that the standards of delivery and content of the teaching is maximized for Severn School of Surgery core trainees in the future.
Failure to attend a module requires a trainee to complete an explanation form which is available below and is returnable to SEVSurgerySchool.email@example.com
