Mathematics doesn't have to be an "apparition"
Mathematics in Medicine
Have you ever heard about the "importance of mathematics in medicine"? Do you believe it? How can we use our mathematical knowledge in this field?
Just follow the text and you will find the answer!
We will look together for a mathematics in a result of medical assessment named SPIROMETRY.
Help of a computer
To help a doctor make a diagnosis, the modern spirometry result does not contain only siprometry curve, but also
o Key measured values
o Volume-Time curve
o Flow-Volume loop
o Comparable values (values, which should be achieved by a healthy man/woman)
Our task for the next pages is to find out how the computer creates this result. And also find out what the numbers and curves can tell the doctor about the patients' healthy conditions.
Mathematics hidden inside
What can I expect from Mathematics?
o Functions and its characteristics
o Graphs and formulas
o Reading with understanding
And much more...
Is it difficult?
Do I Need To Know 'a lot of' Mathematics?
The answer is NO. Do not worry! The only thing what you need is a little bit of time and to have a fancy for thinking ;).
