Advances in Biomedical Engineering, Volume 4, is a collection of papers that deals with gas chromatography, mass spectroscopy and the analysis of minute samples, as well as the role of the government in regulating the production, usage, safety, and efficacy of medical devices. One paper reviews the use of mass spectrometry and computer technology in relation to gas-phase analytical methods based on gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer instruments and gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer-computer analytical systems. Many health practitioners, government and private health agencies, the legal profession, and insurance companies express concern over the safety, efficacy, and quality of medical devices. One paper notes the automation process occurring in the clinical laboratory—that its success depends on the competence of its professional staff and its rate of substitution of mechanized equipment for manual labor. Other papers discuss the technology employed in monitoring the traumatized patient, and also the use of technology such as sensory substitution for human rehabilitation. The collection can prove valuable to bio-chemists, micro-biologists, developmental biologists, and scientists involved in physical rehabilitation and biomaterials research.
Advances in Biomedical Engineering is designed to present work of significance ranging from research to clinical and technological applications. The topics which are treated in this volume and other topics that will form the subsequent volumes of the series are selected on the basis of their relevance to more than one discipline and will have arisen in general as a result of inter- or multi-disciplinary effort. This book comprises four chapters, with the first focusing on the biomedical applications of ultrasound. It tackles such topics as modes of action of ultrasound on living cells and tissues, changes in cell and tissue due to ultrasound, and therapeutic applications of high-intensity ultrasound. The following chapters then focus on separation of neuronal activity by waveform analysis; biomechanical characteristics of bone; and structural and mechanical aspects of connective tissue. This book will be of interest to practitioners in the fields of biological engineering, physiology, and computer science.
A collection of articles from the Advances in Biomedical and Biomimetic Materials symposium give insight into advances in biomedical and biomimetic materials. These selected articles cover such topics as scaffolds for tissue engineering, bioceramics, biomimetic materials, nanoparticles for medical diagnosis and treatment, and novel materials for drug delivery and biosensing.
