CONTENT

Principles of biomedical transducers; amplifiers and signal processing; the origin, sensing and amplification of biopotentials; blood flow and pressure measurement; medical imaging, medical ultrasound and array signal processing; patient safety in medical instrumentation.

OBJECTIVE

To teach the origins of biological signals and the construction of instruments for the measurement of such signals.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Define electro-chemical generation mechanisms of biopotentials
  • Analyze action potential generation and propagation problems in electrically excitable tissue.
  • Describe the importance of the use of well designed biopotential electrodes.
  • Relate biopotential measurements to biological phenomena.
  • Design biopotential amplifiers and signal conditioning circuits using operational amplifiers.
  • Comprehend the operational principles of sensors used in biological measurements.
  • Judge potential life hazards posed by electrically powered medical equipment.
