Signals and medical instrumentation

The Biomedical Signals and Instrumentation course focuses on providing students with essential knowledge to understand, acquire, and process biomedical signals. Through the study of analog and digital signals, as well as the exploration of electronic transducers, students become familiar with the specific characteristics of biomedical signals in diagnostic systems. The course also addresses principles of biomedical instrumentation, recording techniques, and the use of oscilloscopes. Through practical examples in areas such as electromyography and other applications, students will apply their knowledge, with a focus on solving real-world problems in the acquisition and processing of biomedical signals.
Type Subject
Tercer - Obligatoria
Previous Knowledge

Students acquire the following knowledge and develop the following skills:
1. Understanding basic signals from biological systems.
2. Having the ability to acquire quality biomedical signals.
