The updated edition of this popular textbook offers an overview of the major components of the field, including signal processing in bio-systems, biomechanics, and biomaterials. Introducing capstone design and entrepreneurship, the second edition examines basic engineering, anatomy, and physiology concepts to facilitate an in-depth and up-to-date understanding of flow, transport, and mechanics in biological systems and the human body. The book begins by addressing the principles of conservation of mass and development of mathematical models of physiological processes with detailed examples appropriate for an engineering student at the sophomore or first semester junior level.
Praise for the previous edition:
… not only an in-breadth overview on current BME fields, but also an in-depth analysis of specific selected topics that are supported by appropriate mathematical models, equations, quantitative data charts and tables.

For university faculty, [this] book is an excellent textbook for a class. Each chapter contains numerous examples and contains many figures to enhance learning. References and suggestions for further reading are included at the end of each chapter. Problems are included at the end of chapters, where they will best test the student's knowledge. … For practicing engineers without biomedical engineering background, the book provides an excellent resource to explain the many intricacies of biomedical engineering and provides sufficient background material to make the subject understandable.
- Richard C. Fries, PE, CRE, Baxter Healthcare, Inc., in IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, December 2006
… written at a reasonably high scientific level; it employs mathematics, basic physics, chemistry, and thermodynamics of the main medical processes. … well illustrated with figures, schemes, various plots, and mathematical equations. …will definitely be useful for biochemists, biophysicists, and specialists in cell biology and medicine.
- G. Ya. Wiederschain, Doctor of Biological Science, Moscow State University, Russia
… a very well-organized and thorough survey of the field of biomedical engineering (BME).
