SAVITSKY Nikolay Nikolaevich (sort. in 1892) — the Soviet therapist, the academician of AMH (1956), zasl. scientist of RSFSR (1948), winner G osudarst wine award USSR (1951). Major general of medical service.
In 1915 ended VMA, worked as the army doctor, then the intern of military hospital. Since 1920 the employee of the therapeutic clinic run by N. Ya. Chistovich; since 1931 professor, from 1936 to 1962 the chief of department of propaedeutics of internal diseases of VMA and at the same time the chief of department of toxicology.
Main works H. N. Savitsky are devoted to studying of blood circulation normal and at pathological processes, and also development of methods of functional assessment of a hemodynamics in a wedge, conditions. It gave clinical justification of the concepts «minute volume of blood circulation» and «due peripheric resistance of an arterial bed». It designed the original device — the mechanocardiograph, with the help to-rogo registration of sphygmograms and essentially new takhoostsillografichesky technique of registration of parameters of arterial pressure is made (minimum, average, side systolic and final). Technique of H. N. Savitsky allowed to determine also the pulse pressure and one of the major for a wedge, practicians of indicators — the general peripheric resistance to a blood-groove. It possesses, besides, researches of hypoxemic states, problems of an oxygenotherapy, a role of a methemoglobin in development of nek-ry poisonings, termoelektrometriya of internals, patologofiziologichesky mechanisms of poisonings with toxic agents and methods of their therapy.
Under the direction of H. N. Savitsky 14 doctors and 29 candidates of science are prepared. It developed and implemented in educational process a method of complex teaching a course of diagnosis of internal diseases with a course of private pathology and therapy.
