This contribution presents a set of educational videos designed for the study of topics involved in the subject of Anatomy 2. The videos contain records of individual anatomical structures and provide the possibility of individual preparation for practical exercises. They are intended for students of general medicine.

Evidence Based Medicine

Author: Jaroslav Majerník

annotation image

Evidence Based Medicine is an elective course for General and Dental medicine students and its purpose is to provide them information how to systematically search a wide range of international medical journals applying strict criteria for the validity of research. The students will understand how the experts critically appraise the validity of the most clinically relevant articles and how their summaries can be utilized in clinical practice.

This work was supported by the national grant KEGA 011UPJŠ-4/2019 "Increasing of competences and critical thinking level in students of medical study programs using simulation tools of Problem-Based Learning and Evidence-Based Medicine".

Anatomy 2 for students of Dental Medicine

Author: Květuše Lovásová, Adriana Boleková, Dalibor Kolesár

These presentations included here represent a series of the second group of lectures for students of Dental Medicine in the first year of study. Lectures are dedicated to understand the regional anatomy of head and neck, including individual parts of central nervous system – spinal cord and brain, also muscles, arteries, veins, lymphatic structures, and nerves of head and neck. The group of presentations continues with the description of topographical anatomy of head and neck structures, sensory organs their nerve pathways, endocrine system, and skin.

Trauma is defined as a physical injury or a wound to living tissue caused by an extrinsic agent. Trauma is the sixth leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for 10% of all mortalities. It accounts for approximately 5 million deaths each year worldwide and causes disability to millions more. About half of all deaths due to trauma are in people aged 15–45 years and in this age it is the leading cause of death.

Medical Biophysics for Dental Medicine

Author: Imrich Géci, Csilla Uličná, Michal Alexovič, Soňa Tkáčiková, Galina Laputková

annotation image

The lecture notes from the subject Medical Biophysics provide the students of Dental Medicine with the supporting information on lectured topics, which are dealing with the fundamental physical processes in human body on molecular, atomic and subatomic level. The main focus of the present lecture series set on the physical principles of diagnostic and therapeutic leading-edge medical technology units, as well as on the biophysical effects in human body after application of biophysical techniques. Side effects and safe, efficient usage of medical devices in practice is also described. The subjects of molecular biophysics, membrane biophysics, and bioenergetics are included here as well.
