Therapeutics and devices for treatment of electromechanical heart diseases University of Bordeaux
Learning objectives: - Acquire theoretical knowledge concerning the state of the artindevice therapy for heart rhythm disorders and heart failure. - Learn to collect, process and analyse data from a variety ofcardiology tools. - Understand the regulatory and economical challenges in medicaldevice innovation.
- This program is taught entirely in English, proficiency in Englishis therefore required -Other prerequisites are given in previous UEs, namely UE “Biomedical Engineering” and UE “Heart function, energetics andelectrophysiology" - Introductory Python course - Personal computer & internet access
Assessment methods specifically describe: - Group presentations to a jury during the different modules (30%)– 20 minutes x 5 - Homework during the different modules (30%) - Final written exam (40%) – 2hFailure if: -Average grade is below 10 / 20 -One of the 3 grades is below 8 / 20In case of failure, a second session will be held, consisting of anoral presentation and interrogation after self-study of an additionalsubject.
The content will be divided into the following modules: -X-raybased imaging techniques: theoretical principles, medical imagingdata infrastructures (PACS), theoretical basis and practicalimplementation of post-processing image algorithms -Electro-anatomical mapping in cardiac electrophysiology: theoreticalbasis, modelling, multidimensional data representation and extraction -Pacing and defibrillation devices: basic principles, algorithm design,arrhythmia discrimination, remote monitoring and deep-learning basedsecondary discrimination -Left ventricular assistance devices: introductory fluid dynamics,extra-corporeal circulation, implanted assistance devices -Congenital and Structural Percutaneous therapies: Cardiac anatomicaland hemodynamic basic principles, biomaterials and devices componentsspecificities (valves, stents, occluders, etc.), animal models liveinterventions, regulatory and economical aspects of medical innovation
Standard classroom, flipped classroom, e-learning, simulation - 100 contact hours (10 flipped classroom, 10 classical classroom, 76 group work, 4 exam) - 200 hours self-study (100 private reading, 20 group work preparation, 72 group work and 8 writing assessment) The course will be split into 3-5 different modules, which will each focus on a specific clinical subject. For each module, content delivery will be hybrid, with the following sequence: - INTRODUCTORY PHASE: - Self-study - Flipped classroom approach - Complementary seminars - STAGED PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING PHASE: - Group brainstorming phase around a clinical problem - Staged problem solving approach: the groups are asked to propose a solution to each of the steps - Groups are evaluated on their ability to solve the tasks at hand and communicate their results adequately During the staged problem-based learning phase, students are split into small (3-4 person) groups of different backgrounds. Groups are mixed at each new module. The problem-based approach is used as a first evaluation for the students.
