University of Connecticut Fall 2009 Biomedical Engineering Program ` Lecture: Tu, Th, 12:30-1:45 in Eng II 323 BME 6500 – Biomedical Instrumentation I / Class # 6632 BME 4500 – Bioinstrumentation / Class # 7554 3 Credits Prerequisites: BME 5500 (for BME 6500), BME 3500 (for BME 4500), or consent of instructor Instructor: Daniel A. Sierra Bueno, PhD Candidate. Email: dasierra@engr.uconn.edu Office: Bronwell 211. Phone: 486-0417 Office Hours: Tu, Th 3:30 -5:00, or by appointment. Description: This course deals with the art and science of certain noninvasive physical measurements made on the human body in order to permit medical diagnosis of disease conditions (known as noninvasive medical diagnosis or NIMD). Objectives: Upon completion of this course, students should be able to: Describe the electrical properties of electrodes used in recording electrophysiological signals, including: Nerve action potentials, ECG, VCG, EMG, EEG, ERG, etc., and know the typical bandwidths of electrophysiological signals. Understand the specifications of medical differential amplifiers, and what is meant by CMRR. Understand how noise enters recording systems and be capable estimating the SNR of recorded signals. Explain how acoustic and photon energy of different frequencies can be used to measure physiological parameters. Understand physical principles underlying the operation of the various sensors used in NIMD. Understand what the sensors measure, and the medical significance of the measurements.
