Description

The first volume of The Biomedical Engineering Handbook, Fourth Edition provides comprehensive coverage of the latest research findings. Known as the bible of biomedical engineering, the handbook set the standard against which all other references of this nature are measured. And found wanting. The new edition features a new co-author, coverage of medical ethics, historical perspective, and updated coverage in all sections. It provides an important resource for biomedical engineers and students.
