Electrical Engineering/Bio-Medical Engineering Bio-Medical Telemetry: Sensing and Transmitting Biological Information from Animals and Man Second Edition This second edition of the classic Mackay text provides scientists with the necessary tools for studying animal or human subjects without interfering with normal behavior patterns. It presents engineers, scientists, and physicians with critical information about the possibilities and limitations of telemetering methods so that these may be incorporated intelligently into many fields. With substantial coverage of transducers and physiological measurements, Bio-Medical Telemetry gives biologists the necessary background in electronics to enable them to choose equipment wisely and to recognize proper performance. You'll find especially valuable and current information on: * Ultrasonic radio methods for telemetering* Satellite tracking* Underwater methods of tracking In addition, Mackay describes the development and application of the first swallowable radio transmitter which can be telemetered as it travels along the GI tract. Medical practitioners and biologists alike will find this book an invaluable introduction to the applications of bio-medical telemetry. Also of Interest Understanding the Nervous System: An Engineering Perspective by Sid Deutsch, Visiting Professor, University of South Florida Alice Deutsch, President, Bioscreen, Inc. Of great value to the bio-medical engineer as well as any reader curious about the subject, this volume describes the workings of the human nervous system as seen through the eyes of an engineer. With a broad scope and inviting writing style, it provides a fascinating alternative to the unwieldy sources written by life scientists. 1993 Softcover 408 pp IEEE Order No. PP0291-5 ISBN 0-87942-2963 Principles of Computerized Tomographic Imaging edited by Avinash C.
