AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Foundamental principles to understand the operation of the main devices and circuits of biomedical instrumentation and ways of performing measurements on the signals they detect.

Teaching methods

Lectures in classroom and laboratory experimental session which are not mandatory but highly reccomended.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Basic analog electronics, with special focus on  networks adopting operational circuits in linear and non linear mode, and fundamental termo-fluid dynamics, with special focus on fluidic circuits for body perfusion. Measurement methods. Sensors and transducers. Signal conditioning. Analog to digital and digital to analog conversion.

EXAMS

Exam description

Two partial written test during the teaching period or final written complete exam in both instances followed by oral examination. Reaching a sufficient level of evaluation on the written part (both for the two partial test and for the complete written exam) is a necessary condition to access oral examination. In case of negative outcome of the oral examination or of retirement from the student, the complete written part has to be done again.

Assessment methods

The student should exhibit his capacity to solve simple problems related to biomedical instrumentation by making use of his reasoning skills based on the acquired competences.
