Acquiring fundamental knowledge and skills in reanimatology, a field of anaesthesiology and intensive treatment as an integral part of the overall health protection. Permanent monitoring of vital functions of healthy and critically ill patients, ways to recognise changes in vital functions and specific care of patients in life-threatening conditions and in intensive care. Managing complications that arise during general and local anaesthesia, using the newest methods in science, instruments and techniques for pain treatment. Knowing the basic programmes as well as specific techniques of injecting, dose regimen, the right care and using equipment. Covering key topics on general, local anaesthesia, sedation and general anaesthesia, including specific dangers and mistakes in technique which can lead to complications, reanimation and treatment of intensive medicine.
