Description

The subject is concerned with the principles and design of medical instruments most commonly used in hospitals and their applications. This is a hands-on subject where students are given integrated exposure to professional practice. The study of these instruments is limited through three main major applications: cardiovascular disease (CVD), diabetes, and disability. For each area, students study its physiological or electrophysiological aspects and background, measurements of biopotentials and critical-care analytes for monitoring and diagnostic purposes, principles and design of biomedical devices for therapeutic purposes, and new developments for better treatment or assessment in the real world. The subject also aims to encourage the practice of good design.
