ECE4081 - Medical instrumentation
6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSL
Undergraduate Faculty of Engineering
Clayton First semester 2008 (Day)
This unit shows how engineering principles are used in the design and construction of biomedical instrumentation. This includes application of electrochemistry to biological membranes, application of cable theory to nerve axons, application of electronic design principles to the recording of biological electrical signals, application of quantitative optics to spectrometry and flourescopy. In addition, the operating principles of a wide range of medical and laboratory instruments will be explored, raning from pH meters to gene sequencers, pressure transducers to anaesthetic machines.
To understand the generation of electrical signals in the body.
