      The goalIntroducing students to the mechanisms of homeostasis of body fluids and electrolytes and provide easier understanding of the most complex organism disorders that follow disturbancies of homeostatic mechanisms; To allow easier identification of complex disorders of fluid and electrolyte balance and to familiarize them with the methods used in the study of these disorders.
      The outcomeStudent should know the homeostasis of body fluids and electrolytes, understand the mechanisms of disorders of homeostasis, know experimental models and test methods for diagnostics of disorders of homeostasis of body fluids and electrolytes and know basic principles of fluid and electrolytes replacement.
