Learning outcomes The unit Biomedical Instrumentation and Measurements aims to provide students with the basic concepts related to acquisition and signal conditioning for use in monitoring, diagnosis and therapy, promote the development of skills for planning and writing technical reports, oral presentations, development of skills related with experimental laboratorial activities.
At the end of this course the student should be able to:
• Describe methods and techniques for evaluating the measurement quality;
• Apply methods to measure of biomedical quantities;
• Understand the basic transducers specifications for measure biomedical quantities;
• Design of basic measurement systems for biomedical applications;
• Capacity to operate with laboratorial instrumentation;
Syllabus Metrology: Definitions and concepts; measurement error calculation; processing and correction of data; significant numbers in the representation of biomedical quantities; units and standards; measurement methods .
Biomedical Instrumentation Systems: Transducers for different physiological systems; working principle; signal processing and conditioning of the signal; human machine interfaces, storage and transmission of data; power supply and galvanic isolation;
Operation modes of the Biomedical Instrument: Invasive and non-invasive instrument; digital or analogue; amplitude ranges and bandwidth, biocompatibility; and patient monitoring.
