View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Current demand in biomedical sciences emphasizes the understanding of basic mechanisms and problem solving rather than rigid empiricism and factual recall. Knowledge of the basic laws of mass and momentum transport as well as model development and validation, biomedical signal processing, biomechanics, and capstone design have indispensable roles in the engineering analysis of physiological processes. To this end, an introductory, multidisciplinary text is a must to provide the necessary foundation for beginning biomedical students.

Assuming no more than a passing acquaintance with molecular biology, physiology, biochemistry, and signal processing, Biomedical Engineering Principles, Second Edition provides just such a solid, accessible grounding to this rapidly advancing field. Acknowledging the vast range of backgrounds and prior education from which the biomedical field draws, the organization of this book lends itself to a tailored course specific to the experience and interests of the student.

Divided into four sections, the book begins with systems physiology, transport processes, cell physiology, and the cardiovascular system. Part I covers systems analysis, biological data, and modeling and simulation in experimental design, applying concepts of diffusion, and facilitated and active transport. Part II presents biomedical signal processing, reviewing frequency, periodic functions, and Fourier series as well as signal acquisition and processing techniques.

Part III presents the practical applications of biomechanics, focusing on the mechanical and structural properties of bone, musculoskeletal, and connective tissue with respect to joint range, load bearing capacity, and electrical stimulation. The final part highlights capstone design, discussing design perspectives for living and nonliving systems, the role of the FDA, and the project timeline from inception to proof of concept.

Cutting across many disciplines, Biomedical Engineering Principles, Second Edition offers illustrative examples as well as problems and discussion questions designed specifically for this book to provide a readily accessible, widely applicable introductory text.

Review:

Praise for the Previous Edition

"[Provides] not only an in-breadth overview on current BME fields, but also an in-depth analysis of specific selected topics that are supported by appropriate mathematical models, equations, quantitative data charts and tables."
Biomedical Engineering Online, 2005

"For university faculty, [this] book is an excellent textbook for a class. Each chapter contains numerous examples and contains many figures to enhance learning. References and suggestions for further reading are included at the end of each chapter. Problems are included at the end of chapters, where they will best test the student's knowledge. ...
"For practicing engineers without biomedical engineering background, the book provides an excellent resource to explain the many intricacies of biomedical engineering and provides sufficient background material to make the subject understandable."
―Richard C. Fries, PE, CRE, Baxter Healthcare, Inc., in IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, December 2006

"This book is written at a reasonably high scientific level; it employs mathematics, basic physics, chemistry, and thermodynamics of the main medical processes. It is well illustrated with figures, schemes, various plots, and mathematical equations. This book will definitely be useful for biochemists, biophysicists, and specialists in cell biology and medicine."
―G. Ya. Wiederschain, Doctor of Biological Science, Moscow State University, Russia
