Overview

This well-established text describes the principles, applications and design of the medical instrumentation most commonly used in hospitals. Because equipment changes with time, the authors stress fundamental principles of operation and general types of equipment. They avoid detailed descriptions and photographs of specific models. Design principles are emphasized so that a scientist with only some background in electronics can gain enough information to design instruments that may not be commercially available. Since biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary field, the authors have provided varied healthcare industry applications for each type of instrument.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a text which describes the principles, applications, and design of the medical instruments most commonly used in hospitals. Stresses fundamental principles of operation and general types of equipment rather than detailed descriptions of specific models. Fourteen chapters discuss basic concepts, sensors and principles, amplifiers and signal processing, biopotential electrodes and amplifiers, blood pressure and sound, measurement of flow and volume of blood and of the respiratory system, chemical biosensors, laboratory instrumentation and imaging systems, therapeutic and prosthetic devices, and electrical safety.
