Unpaid Annotation
As part of a two-volume set updating the award-winning 1995 first edition, this volume reflects trends in this burgeoning field in new sections on "Transport Phenomena and Biometric Systems" and "Ethical Issues Associated with Medical Technology" and substantial revisions of over half of the chapters. A "family tree" charts the branches of this diverse, fruitful discipline. Chapters are organized into sections (with numbering continued from v.1) on: transport phenomena and biomimetics systems; biotechnology; tissue engineering; prostheses and artificial organs; rehabilitation engineering; human performance engineering; physiological modeling, simulation, and control; clinical engineering; medical informatics; artificial intelligence; and last but not least, ethical issues. Illustrated.
