We will review some circuit theory, and its application to bioinstrumentation. Systems for measuring biologic signals will be discussed including biopotentials, stress and strain, pressure, temperature, and optical properties. Electrical hazards, safety, measuring instruments and techniques will be discussed. This course should prepare students for the electronic and transducer systems used in the Bioengineering Laboratory course. There will be applications to engineering design including transducer systems and sensing and driving circuits. There will also be discussion of ethical and regulatory issues related to bioinstrumentation. There are guest lectures from experts in
