About The Book
Description:

This well-illustrated book provides a broad and highly practical introduction to all aspects of biomedical instrumentation from design and use to maintenance. Readers having an elementary technical background in electronics or engineering and a casual familiarity with physiology should find this book quite beneficial. Besides, students of life sciences and other allied fields with some knowledge of instrumentation should also find this text useful. Furthermore, it should prove to be an excellent reference book for medical/paramedical personnel.

SALIENT FEATURES

· Provides introductory material to give the reader a perspective of the field and a feeling for the subject.

· Introduces the concept of the man-instrument system and the problems encountered in attempting to obtain measurements from a living body.

· Gives an overview of the physiological systems of the body, viz. cardiovascular, nervous and respiratory systems, followed by more detailed explanations.

· Devotes a complete chapter to electrodes_the transducers for the biopotential signals.

· Covers special topics, such as intensive care, monitoring, applications of the computer and electrical safety in the hospital and clinic.

· Incorporates a convenient glossary of medical terms, a summary of physiological measurements, table of SI metric units and their equivalents, self-help illustrative problems and exercises and references.
