Master the building blocks of medical devices with this hands–on guide

This book provides a uniquely practical approach that enables readers to learn the design of medical electronic devices through the analysis of specific projects. Walking you through the building blocks of implementing medical devices, Design and Development of Medical Electronic Instrumentation addresses the practical aspects of amplifying, processing, simulating, and evoking biopotentials. It provides real–world projects that range from simple biopotential amplifiers all the way to a computer–controlled defibrillator. Anyone with a basic understanding of circuit design and electrical engineering mathematics and experience in electronic prototype construction will find these projects accessible. Chapters discuss:

  • Biopotential amplifiers, including a refresher on the origin and acquisition of physiological electrical signals
  • Spectral content of biosignals, filter design, and the selection of frequency ranges for biopotential amplifiers
  • Design of safe medical device prototypes
  • International regulations and design practices for electromagnetic compatibility of medical devices
  • Data acquisition, smart sensors, analog–to–digital conversion, and high–resolution spectral analysis of physiological signals
  • Artificial signal sources for simulating physiological events
  • Principles, clinical applications, and design of excitable tissue stimulators
  • Design of cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators, including a refresher on the electrophysiology of the heart, its conduction deficiencies, and arrhythmias

With access to an ftp site that contains the software and information needed to successfully complete the projects outlined, plus a special epilogue on how to bring a medical device to market, this book will help one quickly master the essentials of medical device design and build sophisticated instrumentation for a broad range of purposes.
