    X-rays are invisible. Because of their high energy and short wavelength they can penetrate almost all materials, but are absorbed to a different extent by different tissues. In the human body, absorption is high for bones, ...
  • Unknown author (WHO, 1995)
    The rugged, high-quality X-ray equipment specified for the W H O Basic Radio­ logical System (BRS) is ideally suited for small clinics, health stations, first-referral hospitals, and general practices under the supervision ...
  • Unknown author (WHO, 2005)
    Mechanical micropipettes (Fig. 2.22) can only be recommended where a reliable supply of new disposable tips is readily available. They are used for the delivery and/or dilution of biological samples in the volume range ...

    Flame photometers are used routinely for the measurement of lithium (Li), sodium (Na), and potassium (K) in body fluids. More sophisticated instruments can also measure calcium (Ca). In flame photometry, an aqueous salt ...

  • Kuphaldt, Tony (2010)
    Electronics is a science, and a very accessible science at that. With other areas of scientific study, expensive equipment is generally required to perform any non-trivial experiments. Not so with electronics. Many advanced ...
  • Kuphaldt, Tony (2007)
    Converting between units is easy if you have a set of equivalencies to work with. Suppose we wanted to convert an energy quantity of 2500 calories into watt-hours. What we would need to do is find a set of equivalent figures ...
  • Kuphaldt, Tony (2007)
    The expression of numerical quantities is something we tend to take for granted. This is both a good and a bad thing in the study of electronics. It is good, in that we’re accustomed to the use and manipulation of numbers ...
  • Kuphaldt, Tony (2009)
    This third volume of the book series Lessons In Electric Circuits makes a departure from the former two in that the transition between electric circuits and electronic circuits is formally crossed. Electric circuits are ...
  • Kuphaldt, Tony (2007)
    Most students of electricity begin their study with what is known as direct current (DC), which is electricity flowing in a constant direction, and/or possessing a voltage with constant polarity. DC is the kind of electricity ...
  • Kuphaldt, Tony (2006)
    One pioneering researcher, Benjamin Franklin, came to the conclusion that there was only one fluid exchanged between rubbed objects, and that the two different ”charges” were nothing more than either an excess or a deficiency ...
  • Skeet, Muriel; Fear, David (2006)
    If it is misused or poorly maintained, electrical equipment can be the cause of death and fire. If it is well maintained, electrical equipment can save life, improve the quality of lives and reduce capital expenditure. ...
  • Malkin, Robert (2006)
    In the developing world, the biomedical engineer will often be called into an active room to do a quick repair or adjustment. You will need to know what procedures to follow. Procedures will vary from hospital to hospital ...
  • Unknown author (Duke University, 2016)
    The Biomedical Technician’s Assessment Instrument Package includes the foundations of survey instruments, survey scripts, and reference materials used in the assessment of biomedical technician’s impact on hospitals in ...
