The Department of Physiology is situated on the first floor of the Basic
Sciences Research & Training Block of P.I.M.S.
The Department is recognized for training of
Students for MD, MBBS, B.Sc., Nursing and
Medical Records Technology Students. It has
several well-equipped laboratories for
undergraduate and postgraduate student
training and research.
Two students have
been chosen to carry out research under the
ICMR Studentship scheme in Physiology.
Haematology Laboratory: This laboratory is provided with all facilities for individual practical training.
Clinical Physiology Laboratory: The Clinical Physiology laboratory provides facilities in human practical
experiments related to cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.
This includes Electrocardiographs, Spirometers, Benedict Roth apparatus,
Perimeters, Ophthalmoscope, Mosso's Ergograph and Bicycle Ergograph
for students use. Two channel and six single channel Physiographs are
also available for group practical work.
Research Laboratory: The research laboratory is well equipped and has a
Computerised Spirometer, Motorised Treadmill,
a 4 channel Polygraph (POLYRITE) for student demonstrations on
Lung functions, Exercise Physiology, Cardiac
cycle, systolic time intervals, Diastolic time
Electromyogram, Electro-oculogram, Galvanic
skin resistance, and for test of autonomic
Mammalian and Amphibian Laboratory: The Mammalian and Amphibian physiology laboratories will be used for student practical demonstrations as well as for animal experimental research
Demonstration room: The department has a spacious demonstration rooms provided with audiovisual aids and closed circuit TV system.
Library cum Seminar room: A well maintained Library cum seminar room is available for small group teaching. A computer with Internet facility and
100 latest books on Physiology including Biophysics are available to the staff for reference. Individual rooms are provided to the entire teaching faculty.
Facilities for integrated teaching: A fully equipped Neurophysiology laboratory attached to the Neurology department is an added facility for students for active learning on clinical applications. Students are also shown
the practical functioning of a Hemodialysis
Unit, Respirators, Heart lung machine and Echocardiogram.
