This third edition of the standard treatment of biomedical instrumentation has been revised and updated, and now includes coverage of therapeutic and rehabilitative devices. Four new chapters cover stimulation and stimulators, radiant-energy devices, ventilators, and anesthesia. The aim is for clear presentation, with mathematics kept to a minimum. Life and physical scientists will find many applications of each principle of biomedical instrumentation. The latest developments are covered, including modern non-invasive techniques, transcutaneous chemical sensors, a capacitive blood pressure transducer, and digital techniques used in signal processing.
