This book is the first to offer a cohesive treatment of the subject, covering fundamental principles, specific human responses, and electrical safety. The book begins with a description of fundamental bioelectric principles. Subsequent chapters treat human reactions to electrical stimulation according to the nature of the response--sensory reactions, cardiac reactions, muscle reactions, electric and magnetic field exposure, and high-voltage and high-current injuries. The last chapter discusses standards and protective measures in consumer products.

Editorial Reviews

"The book is well written and easy to read. It contains excellent medical illustrations, and the author does an exceptional job in annotating equations, tables, figures, and graphs, and relating their significance to the physical systems under discussion....an excellent reference which will be particularly useful to the engineer, medical scientist, or health professional working with electrical medical devices. Also, this book will make a good secondary classroom text for most graduate and undergraduate bioinstrumentation courses." William Nau, Engineering in Medicine and Biology
