Course Coordinator Fatma İnci Çilesiz
Course Objectives 1. Introduction of basic concepts needed for analysis and design of biomedical instruments
2. To develop an understanding for the generation of biological signals in human body
3. To develop basic skills for modeling, sensing and processing of biological signals, and to review basic methods and instrumentation used in medical environment
4. Electrical safety in clinical environment.
Course Description Application of electronics engineering techniques to analysis and instrumentation in biological/medical sciences, physiological systems of the human body, modeling of biological systems, measurement of bioelectrical signals, pressure, flow, volume, and temperature on living systems; biomedical transducers, instrumentation electronics, electrical safety. Recent developments in biomedical instrumentation.
Course Outcomes A student who has taken this course
I. recognizes physiological systems in human body and is able to model them,
II. recognizes transducers and devices to sense signals from these physiological systems,
III. has learned by practice how to sense bioelectrical signals from human body,
IV. has learned how to measure and monitor other biological signals from human body, such as, pressure, flow, flow rate, volume etc.,
V. has developed a sense for electrical safety during biomedical measurements.
Pre-requisite(s) BIL 105E, BIL 108E, FIZ 102E, MAT 201 or MAT 281(E), EHB 211(E) or ELE 222(E), EHB 212(E) and EHB 252(E)
Required Facilities Departmental laboratory facilities will be used while working on the instrumentation project.
Other 1. As part of contribution to the instruction of the course each student will do a 10-15 minute presentation on a topic assigned by the instructor.
2. Each student will build a biomedical device to measure a biological signal (such as, EKG, EEG) of his/her choice and will present his/her results with a demonstration and in laboratory report format.
3. An in depth review on a special topic and instrumentation not covered in class. The results will be presented orally in class and in writing in report format.
