Principles of Biomedical Instrumentation and Measurement, Paperback Book

Principles of Biomedical Instrumentation and Measurement Paperback


A contemporary new text for preparing students to work with the complex patient-care equipment found in today's modern hospitals and clinics.

It begins by presenting fundamental prerequisite concepts of electronic circuit theory, medical equipment history and physiological transducers, as well as a systematic approach to troubleshooting.

The text then goes on to offer individual chapters on common and speciality medical equipment, both diagnostic and therapeutic.

Self-contained, these chapters can be used in any order, to fit the instructor's class goals and syllabus.

Principles are developed according to a unified theory that clearly illustrates the relationship between electronic, pneumatic and fluid equipment.

Computer applications are integrated throughout the coverage.

An appendix provides programmes for in-text calculations, half in BASIC and half in calculator sequence. "Theme" boxes in every chapter offer insights into current topics.

A wealth of example problems - 25 in chapters 4 and 5 alone - provide practice in analyzing equipment problems in a variety of areas.

A prior course in circuit theory is assumed.
