Objectives:Introduction into basics of medical technology. Relevance, general requirements, application, function, configuration, technical features and safety of typical medical equipment, i.e. infusion systems, respiration and anaesthesia devices.
The form of the lab course with intensive and autonomous group work requires that the students deal with different communication and working styles in their groups. Accordingly, the students are able to independently apply the basics of classical project management, such as team organization, task planning and division of labor. In this way, they have trained social skills such as teamwork, criticism and communication skills. Furthermore, they have the competence to find solutions to problems and to select the right methods, to conduct research and independent acquisition of knowledge as well as to present and comprehensively document work results.
