Biomedical Signals and Sensors II: Linking Acoustic and Optic Biosignals and Biomedical Sensors: 2 (Biological and Medical Physics Biomedical Engineering) Paperback – Import 6 Oct 2016
Product Description Review "With knowledge of volume 1 the reader tends to see volume 2 as a continuation. However I feel that volume 2 can also be seen as an independent text for those who show specific interests in acoustic or optic phenomena since all three levels are addressed here in well balanced ways. Thus I also would like to recommend the book as a very valuable stand-alone work." (Univ.Prof.Helmut Pfützner Vice-president of TU BioMed Vienna University of Technology May 2015) From the Back Cover The book set develops a bridge between physiologic mechanisms and diagnostic human engineering. While the first volume is focused on the interface between physiologic mechanisms and the resultant biosignals this second volume is devoted to the interface between biosignals and biomedical sensors. That is in the first volume the physiologic mechanisms determining biosignals are described from the basic cellular level up to their advanced mutual coordination level. This second volume considers the genesis of acoustic and optic biosignals and the associated sensing technology from a strategic point of view. As a novelty this book discusses heterogeneous biosignals within a common frame. This frame comprises both the biosignal formation path from the biosignal source at the physiological level to biosignal propagation in the body and the biosignal sensing path from the biosignal transmission in the sensor applied on the body up to its conversion to a usually electric signal. Some biosignals arise in the course of the body’s vital functions while others map these functions that convey physiological data to an observer. It is highly instructive how sound and light beams interact with biological tissues yielding acoustic and optic biosignals respectively. Discussed phenomena teach a lot about the physics of sound and physics of light (as engineering sciences) and on the other hand biology and physiology (as live sciences). The highly interdisciplinary nature of biosignals and biomedical sensors is obviously a challenge. However it is a rewarding challenge after it has been coped with in a strategic way as offered here. The book is intended to have the presence to answer intriguing “Aha!” questions.
