BIOM 610 - Instrumentation and Measurement in Medicine I

Presentation of the fundamental circuit concepts and signal and system analysis methods used in the design and analysis of medical instrumentation. Circuit concepts include passive electronic circuits, operational amplifier circuits, circuit solution methods, and filter design methods. Special emphasis is placed on circuits commonly employed in medical devices, such as, differential amplifiers and filtering networks used in electrocardiograph systems. Signal and system analysis topics include linear system definitions, convolution, Fourier transforms, and Laplace transforms. Students perform a project using the signal and systems analysis methods to model and analyze biomedical problems. A laboratory, equivalent to one of the four course credits, provides experience in electronic circuit construction and testing, and numerical modeling and analysis of signals and systems. (Y)
