Lab Manual for Biomedical Engineering: Devices and SystemsGary Drzewiecki

Lab Manual for Biomedical Engineering

Devices and Systems (Second Edition)
By Gary Drzewiecki

Spiral Bound ISBN: 978-1-63189-988-1, 156 pages


Lab Manual for Biomedical Engineering: Devices and Systems examines key concepts in biomedical systems and signals in a laboratory setting. Designed for lab courses that accompany lecture classes using Signals and Systems for Bioengineers by J. Semmlow, the book gives students the opportunity to complete both measurement and math modeling exercises, thus demonstrating that the experimental real world setting directly corresponds with classroom theory.

All the experiments in the lab manual have been extensively class-tested and cover concepts such as wave math, Fourier transformation, electronic and random noise, transfer functions, and systems modeling. All exercises include a set of lab report questions tied to the concept taught in the corresponding lecture course. Each experiment builds on knowledge acquired in previous experiments, allowing the level of difficulty to increase at an appropriate pace. In completing the lab work, students enhance their understanding of the lecture course. This updated edition features expanded exercises, additional sample data and measurements, and lab modifications for increased ease.

Lab Manual for Biomedical Engineering: Devices and Systems effectively supports the recommended required text, and has been shown to improve student comprehension and retention. The manual can be used in undergraduate courses for biomedical engineering students who have completed introductory electrical and mechanical physics courses. A two-semester background in calculus is recommended.

Gary M. Drzewiecki earned his Ph.D. in bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania and his M.S. in electrical engineering. He is a professor of biomedical engineering at Rutgers University. Dr. Drzewiecki is a senior member of the IEEE Society and in 2000 received their millennium medal. He is a former advisor to the Noninvasive Cardiovascular Dynamics Society, and he co-chaired the Society's 5th World Congress. With over 100 publications to his credit, Dr. Drzewiecki has written extensively on issues related to noninvasive blood pressure measurement and the mathematical modeling of the cardiovascular system. He is co-editor of the book Analysis and Assessment of Cardiovascular Function.
