Electrotherapeutic Devices: Principles, Design, and Applications

Buy

Electrotherapy is fast gaining mainstream acceptance, no doubt due to the growing mountain of clinical evidence demonstrating its effectiveness. To meet the growing demand for information, this scientifically rigorous guide gives healthcare professionals and engineers essential technical, biological, and clinical background together with hands-on guidelines to design highly effective electrotherapeutic devices and treatment protocols for today's expanding list of clinical applications.

A number of motivating factors contributed to the development of the material in this book. Many professionals in medicine, biomedical engineering, and biophysics have expressed the concern that electrotherapy literature often does not have enough science incorporated into the material. There are many good biomedical engineering and biophysics textbooks available that address a wide range of topics in physiology, immunology, the cardiovascular system, the renal system, the endocrine system, imaging, conventional therapy, and so on. The level of rigor that one sees in these books, with respect to mathematics, physics, and chemistry, is often not found in those that address electrotherapy or magnetotherapy. In some cases, when science is incorporated, the material is often unclear, unconnected, or not adequately linked with applications. I hope that this book will satisfy some of those criticisms. You, the reader, will have the final word on whether this is an improvement, or not.

The material that follows should be useful in a variety of university undergraduate and graduate level courses, short courses, and continuing education courses in the fields of biomedical sciences, biomedical engineering, biophysics, and other related courses in the biological sciences. Mathematical analysis tools requiring the use of calculus do appear in a few places. For the most part, however, the mathematical content is primarily limited to the algebra level. Another motivating factor for this book involves the very foundations of physiology and cell biology. Since the early 1900s, the basic building blocks for these subject areas have been focused on chemistry. A bit of physics is often thrown in, but chemistry has been the primary element in laying the foundation. This is why our understanding and modeling of biological systems is often so vague and limited. Chemistry without physics is like Dick without Jane.

Host Identity Protocol (HIP): Towards the Secure Mobile Internet (Wiley Series on Communications Networking &Distributed Systems)
“Within the set of many identifier-locator separation designs for the Internet, HIP has progressed further than anything else we have so far. It is time to see what HIP can do in larger scale in the real world. In order to make that happen, the world needs a HIP book, and now we have it.” - Jari Arkko, Internet Area...

Parallel and Distributed Logic Programming: Towards the Design of a Framework for the Next Generation Database Machines
Foundation of logic historically dates back to the times of Aristotle, who pioneered the concept of truth/falsehood paradigm in reasoning. Mathematical logic of propositions and predicates, which are based on the classical models of Aristotle, underwent a dramatic evolution during the last 50 years for its increasing applications in automated...

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 High-Performance T-SQL Using Window Functions
Window functions, to me, are the most profound feature supported by both standard SQL and Microsoft SQL Server’s dialect—T-SQL. They allow you to perform calculations against sets of rows in a flexible, clear, and efficient manner. The design of window functions is ingenious, overcoming a number of...
