Biomedical Electronics

Biomedical electronics involves the application of electronic circuits and technologies for treating medical conditions, monitoring health problems and improving the quality of llife for patients. Major advances have occurred which have led to highly sophisticated medical devices, e.g.: Medical implants (cardiac defibrillators, pacemakers, deep brain neuro-stimulators, gastric stimulators, cochlear implants & insulin pumps). Medical monitors (ECG, EEG, & blood pressure); Diagnostic equipment (ultrasound, MRI, PET, CT, & X-ray); Life support (ventilators, incubators, anaesthetic machines); Surgical equipment (endoscopy & electrosurgical). Course Structure A blended mix of theory classes, practical experiments and laboratory sessions combined with project-based learning (PBL) elements (hands-on) with medical device equipment and software tools.
