ENDT 100 Biomedical Electronics • 2 Cr.
Introduction to the field of EEG and its use in medicine and surgery. Emphasizes: instrumentation, principles of conversion between analog and digital signals, localization techniques for bipolar and referential montage, and the purpose of bipolar and referential montage. Technical principles in actual operation of a laboratory are introduced in the classroom and applied in the clinical area of EEG. Prerequisite: Acceptance into program.
After completing this class, students should be able to:1. Verify standard filter settings and their effects on the recording using a differential amplifier 2. Verify localization techniques for bipolar and referential montages using polarity convention 3. Explain basic electronics (time constant, ohms law, etc.) 4. Apply appropriate precautions to ensure electrical safety for patients and staff 5. Apply the principles of conversion between analog and digital signals 6. Calculate voltage, duration, and frequency of a waveform 7. Evaluate impedance and how it is measured
