Bioinstrumentation is the use of bioelectronic instruments for the recording or transmission of physiological information. Biomedical devices are an amalgamation of biology, sensors, interface electronics, microcontrollers, and computer programming, and require the combination of several traditional disciplines including biology, optics, mechanics, mathematics, electronics, chemistry, and computer science. Bioinstrumentation teams gather engineers that design, fabricate, test, and manufacture advanced medical instruments and implantabe devices into a single, more productive unit.
Bioelectronics have a wide variety of applications, including: electrocardiographs, cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators, blood pressure and flow monitors, and medical imaging systems. The field of bioinstrumentation has seemingly endless possibilities because of its fusion of different fields for the common purpose of developing new and exciting ways of managing and treating disease and disabilities. A few emerging technologies include implantable sensors to monitor treatment effectiveness, anti-stuttering aids, blood vessel compliance measurement, distributed sensor networks for home healthcare, and electronic aids for the five human senses. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University's bioinstrumentation concentration is uniquely designed to give students undergraduate experience in bioelectronic conceptions, design, and implementation. In addition, our proximity to Research Triangle Park provides students with direct access to local bioelectronic employers such as Sicel Technologies, Gilero, and Glaxo-Smith-Kline.
Bioinstrumentation is a field of study that centers on creating devices that measure physiological levels, such as blood pressure or brain waves, as well as devices that can help keep a patient alive. Examples of bioinstruments include electric sensors, respirators and ultrasound equipment. Typically, those who work in the field have degrees in biomedical engineering, optics or biology. Medicine has always relied on the most advanced technologies of the day. Those technologies can range from simple heart monitors to artificial organs. The need for better, more accurate devices has seen the study of bioinstrumentation boom, with colleges and universities now offering graduate degrees in the field. In the United States, the National Institute of Health also has a lab devoted to the development of biosensors and bioinstruments.
One of the biggest subfields of bioinstrumentation is biomedical optics. This field includes developing ways to perform noninvasive surgeries that do not require a patient to be cut with surgical instruments. For example, the development of laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) eye surgery is one of the most commonly known advances in laser microsurgery. LASIK allows doctors to correct a wide-range of eye problems, including myopia and astigmatisms. Biomedical optics also encompasses the creation of more advanced imaging machinery, such as computed axial tomography (CAT) scanning devices and microscopes.
OMICS Group International is an amalgamation of Open Access publications and worldwide international science conferences and events. Established in the year 2007 with the sole aim of making the information on Sciences and technology ‘Open Access’, OMICS Group publishes 400 online open access journals in all aspects of Science, Engineering, Management and Technology journals. OMICS Group has been instrumental in taking the knowledge on Science & technology to the doorsteps of ordinary men and women. Research Scholars, Students, Libraries, Educational Institutions, Research centers and the industry are main stakeholders that benefitted greatly from this knowledge dissemination. OMICS Group also organizes 300 International Conferences annually across the globe, where knowledge transfer takes place through debates, round table discussions, poster presentations, workshops, symposia and exhibitions. Moreover, OMICS Group is featured with 30,000 editorial board members, 35,000 reviewer, 1000 international associations and 3 million readers.
