Medical Device Technologies,
Edition 2 A Systems Based Overview Using Engineering Standards
By Gail Baura, Ph.D.

Publication Date: 27 Nov 2020

Medical Device Technologies: A Systems Based Overview Using Engineering Standards, Second Edition, is a comprehensive overview of medical device technology, with a unified approach to each device area covering technical operation, clinical need, regulatory issues and standards and historical devices. It takes a systems-based view, balancing breadth with depth to give an accessible introduction to this field. Close ties are drawn between the design, the product and the patient. Exercises at the end of each chapter include traditional homework problems, analysis exercises and four questions from assigned primary literature. Eight laboratory experiments in both electrical and mechanical medical devices are explored.

Each medical device chapter begins with an exposition of appropriate physiology, mathematical modeling or biocompatibility issues and clinical need. A device system description and system diagram provide details on technology function and administration of diagnosis and/or therapy. This systems approach enables the reader to quickly identify the relationships between devices.
