Physiological Modeling: An Introductory Course for Biomedical Engineers

9780123747075: Physiological Modeling: An Introductory Course for Biomedical Engineers

This is a complete introduction to physiological modeling course text for students of biomedical engineering and related disciplines. It is suitable for courses in modeling, quantitative physiology or engineering physiology.

It provides an introduction to both the mathematical foundations of modelling, and to physiological systems. The book assumes readers have taken freshman or sophomore courses in calculus and chemistry, but is otherwise complete and self-contained in its introduction to biomedical engineering through physiological models at either sophomore or junior level, depending where courses fall in the curriculum. The physiological modeling material alone is also perfect for use up to graduate level

For completeness the book presents a brief introduction to the physiological modeling aspects of traditional engineering topics (electrical, mechanical, control, fluid, and thermal) at the start of each section, before moving onto biological systems applications.

Modeling forms the core of much of the work of biomedical engineers, and the strength of this book is how it clearly and logically helps the reader to grasp the nature of physiological modeling. Mathematics is introduced step by step, with rigorous discussion, worked examples and proofs presented where necessary. However, with the ultimate goal of clarity, less rigorous mathematics are used where appropriate, to help students move on.

Throughout the text frequent illustrative biomedical engineering applications and examples clarify concepts and help to develop problem-solving skills. MATLAB and SIMULINK are used as problem solving tools throughout, with code available for download. Each chapter ends with a wide selection of graded exercises.
* The only physiological modeling text written explicitly for biomedical engineering students, focuses on the topics and techniques required by ABET at junior and senior level
* Self-contained, it includes an introduction to the requried mathematical fundamentals (differential equations and Laplace transforms) and covers realistic engineering applications. Throughout the text, MATLAB and SIMULINK are used to assist with problem solving.
* Full color presentation with excellent illustrations support learning, copious worked examples and exercises, downloadable MATLAB and SIMULINK code, plus a separate fully worked instructor's manual.
