This fully updated second edition provides readers with all they need to understand the use of medical technology in patient care. Incorporating the most recent changes in healthcare, regulations, Standards, and technology, coverage is expanded to include new chapters on device testing, with a particular emphasis on safety inspections, and the interface of medical technology with the electronic medical record. A wide variety of medical instrumentation is discussed, focusing on device types and classifications, and including individual manufacturers as examples. It is designed for readers with a fundamental understanding of anatomy, physiology and medical terminology, as well as electronic concepts such as voltage, current, resistance, impedance, analog and digital signals, and sensors. Additional documents and solutions to end-of-chapter questions accompany the book online, providing biomedical engineering technicians with the resources and tools they need to become knowledgeable and effective members of the patient care team.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'Barbara Christe has excelled at updating this text to keep pace with today’s medical technology. The ‘For Further Exploration’ section in each chapter provides supplemental reference material and valuable links to the most up-to-date information, which transitions the text from an ‘Introduction to Biomedical Instrumentation’ to a living document. This book should be the go-to resource in all HTM educational programs.' Ted Lucidi, The Pennsylvania State University
