  • Slide 3
  • What is Biomedical Engineering? The branch of engineers that think up and create medical devices. Stethoscopes Echograms CT Scans Dialysis machines Even syringes
  • Slide 4
  • History Was first recognized as an official discipline in the 1940s But was actually first seen in: Stethoscope Prosthetic Body Parts
  • Slide 5
  • Sub-disciplines Instruments and Device Engineers Design and create a model of what they want to create, and how it is supposed to work. Some current examples attributed by this branch: Jarvik-7 artificial Pace maker Prosthetic eyes Prosthetic breasts Prosthetic testes, limbs, and joints.

  • Slide 7
  • Sub-disciplines Bio Material Engineers They obtain the ideas of the Instruments and Device Engineer and make the product biocompatible by choosing materials that are Non-toxic Durable Non-carcinogenic These are crucial factors considering they will be implanted into a patient
  • Slide 8
  • Sub-disciplines Image Processing They create non-invasive exploratory machinery, this allows for lower risk investigation of internal problems in a patient Some machines are Echograms Used to view the heart to identify murmurs, or arrhythmia Also used to monitor fetuses throughout development CT Scans Identify tumors, kidney stones, ovarian cysts.

  • Description of Courses at FIU u* = required strengths (classes that require math, science, or engineering)
  • Slide 10
  • Possible Functions Designer Basically come up with ideas and sketches for biomedical devices Relates to Instrument and Device Engineer Analyzer Analyzes designers idea, and attempts to make it functional as well as biocompatible Relates to Materials Engineer
  • Slide 11
  • Possible Functions Presenter (To Clients) Present the new product to doctors hospitals and clinics, proving its simplicity and usefulness in order to have a client to promote this product to patients. Presenter (To Patients) This includes doctors, just having information on as well as using the new product so that more people learn of its simplicity and effectiveness.
