The design of medical electronics is unique because of the background needed by the engineers and scientists involved. Often the designer is a medical or life science professional without any training in electronics or design. Likewise, few engineers are specifically trained in biomedical engineering and have little or no exposure to the specific medical requirements of these devices.Design of Medical Electronic Devicespresents all essential topics necessary for basic and advanced design. All aspects of the electronics of medical devices are also covered. This is an essential book for graduate students as well as professionals involved in the design of medical equipment.

  • Covers every stage of the process, from design to manufacturing to implementation
  • Topics covered include analogue/digital conversions, data acquisition, signal processing, optics, and reliability and failure

Editorial Reviews

Using an engineering approach, the fundamentals of electronic medical devices are presented along with the basic medical knowledge deemed necessary for design considerations. After addressing power subsystems, chapters address a range of sensors. The processes of data acquisition and digital signal processing are also considered. The material is accompanied by examples of technologies and numerous schematic diagrams.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
