Virtual Bio-Instrumentation with CDROM (National Instruments Virtual Instrumentation)by Jon B. Olansen
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Defining virtual instrumentation as "A layer of software and/or hardware added to a general-purpose computer in such a fashion that users can interact with the computer as though it were their own custom-designed traditional electronic instrument," this guide offers advice on the application of virtual instrumentation programs such as LabVIEW and BioBench to biomedical disciplines. Specific applications are explained to highlight uses in the laboratory and clinical environment, connectivity to patient information systems, computerized maintenance and management systems, and business intelligence and decision support applications. Emphasizing methods for measurement, analysis, presentation, and distribution of biomedical and health system information, the applications demonstrated are meant to help the reader learn how to build and customize applications for their own particular uses. The CD-ROMs contain demonstration versions of the LabVIEW, BioBench, and other applications, along with source code illustrating concepts outlined in the text.

Bringing the power of virtual instrumentation to the biomedical community.
Virtual instrumentation allows medical researchers and practitioners to combine the traditional diagnostic tools with advanced technologies such as databases, Active X, and the Internet. In both laboratory and clinical environments, users can interact with a wealth of disparate systems, facilitating better, faster, and more informed decision making. "Virtual Bio-Instrumentation: Biomedical, Clinical, and Healthcare Applications in LabVIEW" is the first book of its kind to apply VI technology to the biomedical field.
Both students and practicing professionals will appreciate the practical applications offered for modeling fundamental physiology, advanced systems analysis, medical device development and testing, and even hospital management and clinical engineering scenarios.About the CD-ROM:
The CD-ROM contains numerous virtual instruments along with source code to illustrate concepts and serve as building blocks for users' own projects. Demonstration copies of LabVIEW, BioBench, and other applications allow users to not only build their own VI's, butalso view some relevant tools already available in the biomedical market.
