Mykola Ivanovich Pirogov

Mykola Ivanovich Pirogov was a prominent Russian scientist, doctor, and pedagogue. He was born in Moscow in 1810. He is considered to be the most famous personality in the history of Russian medicine and the greatest of all Russian surgeons.

Pirogov was the 13-th child in the family. His father died in 1824, leaving his family without means. M. Pirogov intended to become a civil servant. However, the family doctor Efrem Mukhin, who was a professor of anatomy and physiology at Moscow University, persuaded the authorities to accept him as a student of the Medical Faculty of Moscow University in 1825, even though Pirogov was only fourteen.

Pirogov decided to specialize as a surgeon when he completed his studies in 1828. He was sent to Dorpat (now Tartu) to complete further studies. In 1832 he defended his doctor’s thesis.

He travelled in Germany, visiting the Universities of Berlin and Göttingen to observe the state of surgery, and became a professor at the German University of Dorpat in 1836, aged only 26.

In 1840 Pirogov took up an appointment as professor of surgery at the academy of military medicine in Saint Petersburg.

Pirogov worked as an army surgeon in the Caucasian war in 1847, in the Crimean war in 1854, in the Franco-Prussian war in 1870, and in the Russian-Turkish war in 1877. From his work in the Crimea, he is considered to be the father of field surgery.

Pirogov also originated the intravenous administration of ether as an anesthetic. He was the first surgeon to use anesthesia in a field operation. From 1848 he conducted an important investigation of cholera, based on almost 800 sections.

Pirogov’s work during the Crimean War is of such importance that he is considered to be the founder of field surgery. Pirogov was the first to use the plaster cast in field conditions. He conceived the technique of plaster casting while observing the work of a sculptor.

At that time Pirogov also developed a new method for amputation of the foot, known as the “Pirogov’s amputation”.

He returned to Saint Petersburg after the end of the Crimean war in 1856, but withdrew from the academy. He wrote a paper on the problems of pedagogy, arguing for the education of the poor, non-Russians, and women. While living in Odessa, Pirogov resided at Deribasovskaya, 31 and first suggested the formation of Odessa State Medical University (as the medical faculty of Novorossiysk University).

In 1861 he retired to his estate in Vishnya in central Ukraine. He treated the local peasants, established a clinic, and learnt the Ukrainian language as a show of respect. Now the Pirogov Museum exists at his former estate.

Exercise 5. Read and translate the text:


Hippocrates was a Greek physician born in 460 ВС on the island of Cost, Greece. He became known as the founder of medicine and was regarded as the greatest physician of his time. He based his medical practice on observations and on the study of the human body. He held the belief that disease had а physical and a rational explanation. He rejected the views of his time that considered illness to be caused by superstitions and by possession of evil spirits and disfavor of the gods.

Hippocrates was able to draw some accurate conclusions from his observations. He concluded correctly, that the right side of the body is controlled by the left side of the brain, and the left side of the body by the brain’s right side. He presented clear descriptions of melancholia, mania, postpartum depression, phobias, paranoia, and hysteria.

Hippocrates held the belief that the body must be treated as а whole and not just a series of parts. Не accurately described disease symptoms and was the first physician to accurately describe the symptoms of pneumonia, as well as epilepsy in children. He believed in the natural healing process of rest, a good diet, fresh air and cleanliness. He noted that there were individual differences in the severity of disease symptoms and that some individuals were better able to cope with their disease and illness than others. He was also the first physician that held the belief that thoughts, ideas and feelings come from the brain and not the heart as others of him time believed. Hippocrates traveled throughout Greece practicing his medicine.

Нippocrates founded medical school on the island of Cost, Greece and began teaching his ideas. In the 5th century BC Hippocrates developed an Oath of Medical Ethics for physicians to follow. Since that time it is called Hippocratic Oath. “ I shall enter any house for the good of the patient, I shall not do my patient any harm” – these are the words from the Hippocrates Oath. This Oath is taken by physicians today as they begin their medical practice. The oath has been modified numerous times. When the Oath was rewritten in 1964, that version has been widely accepted and is still in use today by many medical schools.

Hippocrates died in 377 ВС. Тоday Hippocrates is known as the "Father of Medicine". He might also be regarded as an ancient “father of psychology”. He described natural causes of psychological conditions, recommended holistic treatments, presented the first clear descriptions of many behavioral problems, and formulated long-lasting theories of temperament and motivation.

Health Care in Ukraine

At the beginning of the third millennium Ukraine is facing deep changes and reforms in all spheres of political, economic and public life. These changes touch upon medicine as well, and health service in particular. The Constitution of Ukraine adopted on June 28, 1996 guarantees the rights of Ukrainian citizens to life, health protection, medical care and medical insurance, safe and healthy environment.

The present health service in Ukraine both preventive and curative was inherited from the former state. It was available to the whole population. It is an establishment and support of strong post graduate programs for training in family medicine, introducing insurance medicine, the creation of a wide network of private consulting rooms, dental and eye surgery etc. They are equipped with modern apparatus and devices, but their services are very expensive for the majority of the Ukrainian population. Many people still go to the state hospitals and polyclinics for their medical needs.

The most distinctive feature of health service in our country is prophylaxis of different diseases, the early detection of the first signs of the disease. Much attention is paid to popularization of medical science among the population. For this purpose the press, cinema, radio and TV programs are very helpful.

The basic medical units in our country are rural, district, regional or municipal polyclinics. The hospitals have different departments, which specialize in the treatment of particular diseases. In case of emergency you may dial 103 for the ambulance to come, which operates day and night and is free of charge, except private emergency service, for example “Borys” in Kyiv or “Into-Sana” in Odessa.

Special attention is paid to the health of mother and child. Maternity homes, Mother-and-Child Health Care Centres concentrate their efforts on the problems of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology. These problems are especially acute now when the majority of our population lives under ecologically unfavorable conditions and the questions of demography are of deep national concern.

A doctor in the modern world should develop the basic skills necessary to exclude serious illnesses, to diagnose early, to treat common health problems without expensive, sometimes invasive investigations and therapies, to manage chronic illnesses.

Ukrainian society needs citizens who are healthy, educated, motivated, and able to work for their country.

Exercise 6. Answer the questions to the text:

1. What does the Ukrainian Constitution guarantee?

2. How can the present day health service be described?

3. What is the most distinctive feature of health service?

4. What efforts are made for mother and child health care?

5. What are the basic medical units in Ukraine?

6. What kind of skills should a modern day doctor have?

7. What should a person do in case of emergency?

8. What is the cost of medical help in Ukraine?
