Principles of Measurement and Transduction of Biomedical Variables

Principles of Measurement and Transduction of Biomedical Variables is a comprehensive text on Biomedical Transducers covering principles of functioning, application examples and new technology solutions. It presents measurement methods of biomedical variables and their transduction to an electrical variable such as voltage. This can then be more easily quantified, processed and visualized as numerical values and graphics; for instance, in a video monitor or liquid crystal display. A different type of transducer is presented in every chapter, such as the functioning principle, transducer block diagram, modeling equations and basic applications in biomedical engineering.
It shows technical and theoretical principles to measure biomedical variables as arterial blood pressure, blood flow, temperature and CO2 concentration in exhaled air. Coverage of these principles will enable you to know how to construct main type of transducers with biomedical applications. Prof. Button’s book brings together universal concepts and current technical information on how sensors and transducers function which makes this book an ideal resource for teaching measurement and transduction of biomedical variables in undergraduate and postgraduate Biomedical Engineering programs.
