Principles of Measurement and Transduction of Biomedical Variables

Principles of Measurement and Transduction of Biomedical Variables is a comprehensive text on biomedical transducers covering the principles of functioning, application examples and new technology solutions. It presents technical and theoretical principles to measure biomedical variables, such as arterial blood pressure, blood flow, temperature and CO2 concentration in exhaled air and their transduction to an electrical variable, such as voltage, so they can be more easily quantified, processed and visualized as numerical values and graphics. The book includes the functioning principle, block diagram, modelling equations and basic application of different transducers, and 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.
