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. The book shows technical and theoretical principles to measure biomedical variables as arterial blood pressure, blood flow, temperature and CO2 concentration in exhaled air. Readers will learn how to construct main type of transducers with biomedical applications. This book is an ideal resource for teaching measurement and transduction of biomedical variables in undergraduate and postgraduate Biomedical Engineering programs.


Professionals, academics and students who work in Biomedical Instrumentation and Transduction of Biomedical Variables. The book can also be used in Biomedical Engineering graduate and undergraduate programs. Secondary market of; nurses, physicians, hospital administrators, health technologists, technicians in electronics.
