Overview

There are books about medical instrumentation, about modeling, about physiological models, and about signal processing, but this is the first to offer a broad integration of all these subjects. It provides a survey of the field, a review of the necessary fundamentals on which deeper study can be based, and an overview of possible search terms. The early chapters refresh and deepen knowledge and introduce modeling. The intermediate chapters describe important clinical measurement methods and the information they provide about a patient, including approaches, possibilities, limitations and accuracies. Finally, the book discusses therapeutic instruments often used in the clinic.
