Laboratory to accompany BIOE414.
Use of sensors and medical instrumentation for static and dynamic biological inputs. Measurement of biomedical signals.
By the end of class, students will be able to…
- Analyze, design, and construct operational amplifier and instrumentation amplifier circuits to amplify biosignals.
- Analyze, design, and construct filter circuits to filter unwanted signals from biosignals.
- Acquire electrical and biological signals by implementing virtual instruments with Agilent VEE, LabVIEW, or amplifiers coupled to a computer with other software.
- Understand biosensor and electrode design and apply them for signal acquisition.
- Understand the limitations of instrumentation in terms of accuracy, resolution, precision, and reliability.
- Understand the origin of cardiac and muscle biosignals and acquire data using ECG and electromyogram electrodes.
- Determine and characterize the factors that limit ultrasound and other imaging methods in biological tissue.
- Describe the requirements and limitations of bioinstrumentation in the clinical environment.
- Function and interact cooperatively and efficiently as a team member in completing laboratory projects.
- Present laboratory data in a written format.
