Medical chemistry for students of Dental medicine

Author: Marek Stupák, Vladimíra Tomečková, Mária Mareková, Jana Mašlanková, Katarína Dubayová

annotation image

The subject Medical Chemistry includes selected chapters from general, inorganic, physical and organic chemistry, chemistry of elements and important dental compounds, introduction to biochemistry and methodologically very important – analytical chemistry. Teaching is placed to the 1st semester of the study at Medical Faculty of UPJŠ. The knowledge of the structure and function of chemical compounds and substances, as well as of the fundamental dental materials, e.g. amalgams, porcelains, polymers, etc. is very important for the dentist, since use them daily during the praxis. The chapters from Medical Chemistry represent the basis for the next study of Dental Materials, Medical Biochemistry, Pathobiochemistry, Pathophysiology, Clinical Biochemistry, and others principal subjects of dental medicine study.

Knowledge of the structure and function of chemical substances and compounds, as well as their interaction and factors which can influence these interactions is very important for incoming doctors. The chapters from Medical Chemistry represent the basis for the study of Medical Biochemistry, Patobiochemistry, Patophysiology, Clinical Biochemistry, and many others specialized subjects of the medical studies.

Clinical biochemistry

Author: Eva Ďurovcová

Clinical biochemistry in 5th year study of medicine is an extension of the basic rate of Biochemistry II from 2nd year. It is a highly applied biochemistry, which provides teachers - doctors with experience in clinical biochemistry. The aim of the course is in the form of lectures and seminars to provide information on biochemical investigation methods for selected diseases and diagnostic options refer to the relationship between metabolism and laboratory values in model tests patients align tests with monitoring therapy and selecting the most appropriate investigative methods in relation to the expected diagnosis. Correct indication and interpretation of clinical biochemistry tests is an important part of a physician's daily work.

Practical exercises from Medical Chemistry

Practical exercises from Medical Chemistry is a set of experimental exercises designed for a better understanding of the subject. Laboratory manuals for the practical exercises are arranged into weeks according to the syllabus and contain theoretical introduction as well as experimental procedures for each exercise. Published material represents an effective instrument for understanding of the basic principles of Medical Chemistry as well as a suitable additional material for preparation for final examination.

Practical exercises from Medical Biochemistry for students of General Medicine

Author: Jana Mašlanková, Peter Urban, Vladimíra Tomečková, Marek Stupák, Miroslava Rabajdová, Mária Mareková

annotation image

The laboratory manuals are developed to the foreign students of medicine for practical laboratory exercise and verification of knowledge from medical biochemistry. Exercises are arranged into weeks, like it is in Study plan of Lectures and practical exercises. Student can apply their manual skill in performing of the experiments, and also train their ability in evaluation of results and making of diagnoses.

Medical biochemistry

Author: Mária Mareková, Marek Stupák, Katarína Dubayová

annotation image

Biochemistry has an irreplaceable role in study of medicine. The students should learn about biochemical reactions beyond all living processes including diseases. The knowledge will help them later to diagnose and treat many diseases correctly. Biochemistry is so fundamental for study of pathobiochemistry, physiology, pathophysiology, clinical biochemistry and other subjects of medicine.

This publication is intended mainly for students of medicine studying at the Faculty of Medicine, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice. The textbook covers the basic knowledge of selected topics of general, physical, inorganic, organic and bioorganic chemistry required for successful completion of the course of Medical Chemistry. Knowledge of the structures and functions of chemical substances and compounds, as well as their interactions and factors of surroundings influencing those interactions is very important for next study medical biochemistry incoming physicians. For better and easier understanding is the text appropriately supplemented with figures, tables, and numerous of chemical schemes. The separate part of this publication presents the chemistry of the most important dental materials used in clinical practise of future dentists, including the properties of metals, polymers and impression materials.

Knowledge of the structure and function of chemical substances and compounds, as well as their interactions and factors which can influence these interactions are very important for study Medical Chemistry and Biochemistry. The supporting materials are repeating of high school chemistry and represent the summarization of knowledges from high school chemistry including obligatory part of inorganic chemistry, structure and properties of bioorganic compounds and characteristic chemical reactions. The materials starts with the basics of international nomenclature of inorganic compounds, continue with chapter about properties of acids and bases, pass through examples from chemical equilibrium and redox reactions. The bioorganic part comprise the most essential organic and bioorganic molecules and their reactions. All listed information can help the student to better prepare for exam from Medical Chemistry.
