About this Book

Welcome to the home of the Encyclopedia of Medical Devices and Instrumentation online! The articles in the Encyclopedia of Medical Devices and Instrumentation focus on what is currently useful or is likely to be useful in future medicine. They answer the questions, "What are the branches of medicine and how does technology assist each of them?" Articles focus on the practice of medicine that is assisted by devices, rather than including, for example, the use of drugs to treat diseases. The title is the only resource on the market addressing the subject in encyclopedic detail.

Articles emphasize the contributions of engineering, physics, and computers to the general areas of anesthesiology, biomaterials, burns, cardiology, clinical chemistry, clinical engineering, communicative disorders, computers in medicine, critical care medicine, dermatology, dentistry, ear, nose, and throat, emergency medicine, medical physics, microbiology, nephrology, neurology, nutrition, obstetrics, oncology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pain, pediatrics, peripheral vascular disease, pharmacology, physical therapy, psychiatry, pulmonary medicine radiology, rehabilitation, surgery, transducers, and urology.
