Master the building blocks of medical devices with this hands-on guide

This book provides a uniquely practical approach that enables readers to learn the design of medical electronic devices through the analysis of specific projects. Walking you through the building blocks of implementing medical devices, Design and Development of Medical Electronic Instrumentation addresses the practical aspects of amplifying, processing, simulating, and evoking biopotentials. It provides real-world projects that range from simple biopotential amplifiers all the way to a computer-controlled defibrillator. Anyone with a basic understanding of circuit design and electrical engineering mathematics and experience in electronic prototype construction will find these projects accessible. Chapters discuss:

  • Biopotential amplifiers, including a refresher on the origin and acquisition of physiological electrical signals
  • Spectral content of biosignals, filter design, and the selection of frequency ranges for biopotential amplifiers
  • Design of safe medical device prototypes
  • International regulations and design practices for electromagnetic compatibility of medical devices
  • Data acquisition, smart sensors, analog-to-digital conversion, and high-resolution spectral analysis of physiological signals
  • Artificial signal sources for simulating physiological events
  • Principles, clinical applications, and design of excitable tissue stimulators
  • Design of cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators, including a refresher on the electrophysiology of the heart, its conduction deficiencies, and arrhythmias

With access to an ftp site that contains the software and information needed to successfully complete the projects outlined, plus a special epilogue on how to bring a medical device to market, this book will help one quickly master the essentials of medical device design and build sophisticated instrumentation for a broad range of purposes.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I couldn't put this book down. It contains a good description of instrumentation, including analog and digital filtering, signal conditioning, data acquisition. The authors' background is in cardiac care (pacemakers, etc.), and the book seems to focus a great deal on patient contact scenarios, whereas I would have preferred some discussion of instrumentation of other signals such as optical techniques (e.g. pulse oximetry), thermography, perhaps imaging technologies. It's a great book for anyone doing work with defibrillators/pacemakers, myography.

Medical Compliance: This book is a *fantastic* reference for anyone who needs to take a medical device through regulatory compliance. It includes a succint introduction to getting through the FDA mazz, plus several chapters dedicated to EMC (radiated/conducted emissions & suceptibility, etc.) and safety.

Although you'll find a decent quantity of equations and theory, the book is extremely practical and hands-on, including tons of clear schematics for various affordable test circuits (field probes, Hipot, leakage, etc.), and simple, direct approaches to testing and construction.

If you're looking strictly for a book on medical instrumentation, this is probably not enough. You won't find details of advanced filtering (e.g., adaptive noise cancellation), chopper detectors, fuzzy modeling & logic, algorithms, etc. But even though it's sparse on "design", this book is very strong on "development". Note the emphasis on FDA in this book, and very little mention of the European Medical Device directives (which, admittedly, are somewhat harmonized).
