Medicine 2.0'09 (Toronto, Canada)

Web Based Simulation Games With Multimedia E-learning Environment.
Jiri Kofranek*, Pavol Privitzer, Marek Matejak*, Martin Tribula, Ondřej Vacek

Background Nowadays, the old Comenius`s motto – “schola ludus“ (“school as a play”) has found its modern use in interactive educational programs using simulation games. Through the simulation game we can test the behaviour of individual physiological subsystems, both under normal conditions and in the presence of a disorder. Objective Our goal was to design a web teaching tool, which helps to explain the function of individual physiological systems using interactive multimedia ...

HumMod-Golem Edition – Large Scale Model of Physiological Systems for Web Based Medical Simulator
Jiri Kofranek*, Marek Matejak*, Pavol Privitzer, Martin Tribula, Jan Silar, Stanislav Matousek

Background “Tell me, I’ll forget, show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand“ – this ancient Chinese wisdom is also confirmed by modern learning methods, where educational simulators are widely applied. The core of sophisticated medical simulators is a complex model of physiological regulations, which incorporates models not only of individual physiological subsystems, but also their connections to form a more complex unit. The detailed structure of models used in ...

Atlas of Physiology and Pathophysiology - Web Based Simulators for Medical Education
Jiri Kofranek*, Marek Matejak, Pavol Privitzer, Tomáš Kulhánek, Filip Ježek, Roman Kerekeš

Background The connection of the Internet and interactive multimedia environment with simulation models provides quite new pedagogical opportunities, particularly when it comes to explaining complex interconnected relationships, active exercising of practical skills, and verifying theoretic knowledge. Objective Our goal was to design a web based interactive teaching tools, which helps to explain the function of interconnected physiological systems using interactive multimedia connected w...

My®Doctor: a Smartphone Application for E-Health Care
Roman Kerekes*, Jiri Kofranek*, Jaroslav Januska

EHealth in the Czech Republic is still evolving. On the one hand, the problem is the lack of trust between patients and fear of personal data leakage. On the other hand, doctors argue that the proposed system is not sophisticated. In this context we have created smartphone application (Můj®Lékař, Google Play, CZ) as a cornerstone mobile client for the patient. The current version of application is a pilot project designed for patients. The application is location aware and searches pharma...

Breast Self-Examination (BSE) in Breast Cancer Prevention: an Educational Smartphone App
Roman Kerekes*, Jiri Kofranek*, Jan Danes, Miroslava Skovajsova

Early detection of breast cancer plays the leading role in the reducing mortality rates and improving the patients' prognosis. The recommended screening methods for this fatal disease are: mammography, clinical breast examination and breast self-examination (BSE). Although there is no clear evidence to support the efficacy of performing routine BSE alone in early detection and decreasing mortality due to breast cancer, BSE is simple, inexpensive and teaching more importantly raises awareness...

CARDIO3®ECHO Expert System for Echocardiography : a Smartphone Application
Roman Kerekes*, Jiri Kofranek, Jaroslav Januska

BACKGROUND Echocardiography is one of the non-invasive, widely available and basic methods to examine the heart. Current devices allow echocardiographic measurements and calculations of large amounts of hemodynamic and morphological parameters. To establish the diagnosis and assessment of severity of heart disease, it is needed to evaluate all available data. OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to investigate the feasibility of CARDIO3®ECHO expert system for the diagnosis of ...
