Overview

Bringing the power of virtual instrumentation to the biomedical community.

  • Applications across diverse medical specialties
  • Detailed design guides for LabVIEW and BioBench applications
  • Hands-on problem-solving throughout the book
  • Laboratory, clinical, and healthcare applications
  • Numerous VI's with source code, plus several demos, are available on the book's web site

Virtual instrumentation allows medical researchers and practitioners to combine the traditional diagnostic tools with advanced technologies such as databases, Active X, and the Internet. In both laboratory and clinical environments, users can interact with a wealth of disparate systems, facilitating better, faster, and more informed decision making. Virtual Bio-Instrumentation: Biomedical, Clinical, and Healthcare Applications in LabVIEW is the first book of its kind to apply VI technology to the biomedical field.

  • Hands-on problems throughout the book demonstrate immediate practical uses
  • Examples cover a variety of medical specialties
  • Detailed design instructions give the inside view of LabVIEW and BioBench applications

Both students and practicing professionals will appreciate the practical applications offered for modeling fundamental physiology, advanced systems analysis, medical device development and testing, and even hospital management and clinical engineering scenarios.

Meet the Author

Jon B. Olansen began his career as a NASA flight controller, supporting 32 Space Shuttle missions. He obtained his Ph.D. as a National Instruments Fellow at Rice University, where he specialized in biomedical experimentation in electrophysiology and cardiovascular hemodynamics. He has since returned to NASA, representing the Astronaut Office in the design, development, and operation of human life sciences experiments destined for the International Space Station.


Eric Rosow has over 16 years of experience in biomedical engineering and life science applications of virtual instrumentation. He is Director of Biomedical Engineering at Hartford Hospital, where he introduced virtual instrumentation into the hospital environment. He is also a co-founder of Premise Development Corporation, a software company for the biomedical and healthcare industries, and has co-developed numerous virtual instrument solutions for leading healthcare institutions throughout the world.
