 PATHOPHYSIOLOGY DEPARTMENT HOME PAGE

 

The first Pathophysiology Department in Bulgaria was established at the Medical University of Plovdiv by Prof. L. Telcharov in 1947. More than 50 years it remains a leader in Bulgarian scientific research, successfuly managing with the chalanges of modern technology and methodology.

Pathophysiology is one of the fundamental disciplines in medicine. Even its name reveals the close connection with Physiology on one hand and with Pathology on the other. Pathologic physiology is the binding link between preclinical and clinical disciplines.

Functional diagnostics in several directions is also performed in the department:
  1. Complex assessment of external breathing (slow spirometry, forced expiration spirometry, bronchodilator and challenge (bronchoprovocation) tests, bodypletismography, diffusion tests, blood-gas analysis, acid base analysis)
  2. Complex assessment of dyspnea;
  3. Complex assessment of functional capacity cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET), walking tests (6MWT)
