Electromagnetic Compatibility in Medical Equipment: A Guide for Designers and Installers
William D. Kimmel & Daryl D. Gerke
EMI is the most important issue in medical electronics today, with the FDA and the European Union taking proactive roles in its control. This book provides practical design and installation guidance to those concerned with the two primary issues in the design of medical electronics-regulatory considerations and the threat of litigation. The concerns with electromagnetic interference impacting patients’ critical healthcare equipment cannot be overstated: you must protect yourself and others. These EMI problems can most effectively be addressed early in equipment and system design and Electromagnetic Compatibility in Medical Equipment offers you the help you need.
Electromagnetic Compatibility in Medical Equipment is vital reading for designers, installers, quality assurance professionals, and others involved with the design and operation of all classes of electronic medical devices and equipment. Equipment must be designed to prevent radiation from your device affecting others. Equipment must be designed to prevent its operation from being affected by others. Electromagnetic Compatibility in Medical Equipment shows you how to do this step by step.
From Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) to Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), passive components, microshock hazards, and cable shielding, Electromagnetic Compatibility in Medical Equipment is the first book on this subject dedicated to the specific needs of the medical device equipment industry. Extremely thorough, with hundreds of examples of concerns and solutions, this text is a breakthrough edition for medical equipment designers.
Hundreds of resource references, lists of government documents, regulations and standards, tables of scientific material properties, and tables of constants and conversion factors complement and round out the text, making it the single most authoritative treatise on the subject.
