This new edition provides major revisions to a text that is suitable for the introduction to biomedical engineering technology course offered in a number of technical institutes and colleges in Canada and the US. Each chapter has been thoroughly updated with new photos and illustrations which depict the most modern equipment available in medical technology. This third edition includes new problem sets and examples, detailed block diagrams and schematics and new chapters on device technologies and information technology.
"The book presents a comfortable balance between clinical applications, basic technical information, and various pictures of medical technologies one will encounter in the field. Additionally, related anatomy and physiology principles and essential technical terms are a nice complement to the technologies presented. The everyday duties and responsibilities of a biomed are captured by the various "true-to-life" scenarios introduced throughout the book."
"This book is a good resource to have for those looking at going into the field. I frequently use the book as a field marketing tool because it showcases a good variety of medical technologies using an appealing, "down-to-earth", "reader-friendly" approach."
