|This course will introduce students to medical and biomedical engineering concepts. The focuses are on how signal analysis can clarify the understanding of biomedical signal interpretation and diagnosis. Topics include EEGs, ECGs, EMGs, respiratory and blood pressure (how they are generated and measured), biosignals as random processes, spectral analysis, wavelets, time-frequency functions, and signal processing for pattern recognition.
|The cognitive, affective and behavioral objectives of this course are following:
• Introduction to the principles of biomedical signals and systems through ECG, EEG, EMG, NIBP, IBP and respiratory examples.
• Explaining the importance of engineering in medicine.
• Giving an outline of characteristics of biomedical signals.
• Providing basic concepts about the human heart.
• Providing basic concepts about the respiratory system
