MET 4360 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Covers the theory and design characteristics of instrumentation used in measuring typical/major physiological parameters and variables such as bioelectric potential, cardiovascular, respiratory, thermal, and physical movement measurements. Builds upon the knowledge and practice on foundations of measurements and analysis acquired earlier by students and concentrates on the study of characteristics of biologic signals, typical transducers to measure them, and instrumentation for patient monitoring. Discusses noninvasive diagnostic medical instrumentation, including underlying principles of thermography, ultrasound, and polygraphy, as well as the basic principles of biotelemetry, X-ray instrumentation, and instrumentation for clinical tests and analysis with an emphasis in blood cells tests.
