Describing the physiological basis and engineering principles of electro-medical equipment, Handbook of Biomedical Instrumentation also includes information on the principles of operation and the performance parameters of a wide range of instruments.Broadly, this comprehensive handbook covers: Recording and monitoring instruments ; Measurement and analysis techniques ; Modern imaging systems ; Therapeutic equipment. This 3rd Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated taking into account technological innovations and introduction of new and improved methods of medical diagnosis and treatment.
Capturing recent developments and discussing new topics, the 3rd Edition includes a separate chapter on 'Telemedicine Technology', which shows how information and communication technologies have made significant contribution in better diagnosis and treatment of patients and management of health facilities. Alongside, there is coverage of new implantable devices as increasingly such devices are being preferred for treatment, particularly in neurological stimulation for pain management, epilepsy, bladder control, etc.
The 3rd Edition also appropriately addresses 'Point of Care' equipment: as some technologies become easier to use and less expensive and equipment becomes more transportable, even complex technologies can diffuse out of hospitals and institutional settings into outpatient facilities and patient's homes.
With expanded coverage, this exhaustive and comprehensive handbook would be useful forbiomedical physicists and engineers, students, doctors, physiotherapists, and manufacturers ofmedical instruments.
