The transport and equilibrium of chemical species is at the heart of processes that occur at all levels of biological organization-molecular, cellular, and organismal. For processes as diverse as receptor-ligand interactions and respiratory gas exchange, it is the engineering principles of thermodynamics, diffusion, and reaction kinetics that provide a unique perspective for analyzing and quantifying the underlying phenomena.
This book teaches the key scientific and engineering principles that are necessary to understand how important molecules in the human body, such as nutrients, drugs, and toxic substances, move from cell to cell, organ to organ, and between a person and the surrounding environment. It also contains information about the design of man-made devices, such as artificial lungs and kidneys, which are used in the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases.
The approach is unique in that it stresses engineering principles rather than specific applications (though applications are detailed in the latter portion of the book) and reinforces learning with diverse example problems and frequent homework assignments. This empowers students with the self-confidence necessary to successfully tackle new problems throughout their careers.Klappentext:
Teaches the fundamentals of mass transport and chemical reaction with a unique approach emphasizing engineering principles in a biomedical environment
The impact of engineering on medicine and biology has grown significantly. Not only has this resulted in an impressive world-wide increase in educational biomedical engineering programs, but many traditional chemical and agricultural engineering departments have changed their names to include "bio-" recognizing the importance of biomedical engineering research and development to human welfare and the global economy.
Biomedical Mass Transport and Chemical Reaction is designed for students whose educational emphasis involves physicochemical aspects of biomedical systems. A major objective of this textbook is to integrate engineering principles with relevant biomedical applications at the cellular, tissue, organ, and whole-body levels. These applications incorporate basic as well as more sophisticated and complex concepts, which are appropriate for graduate as well as advanced undergraduate engineering students.
Divided into seven parts Biomedical Mass Transport and Chemical Reaction features:
The approach is unique in that it is organized by engineering principles rather than by specific types of applications. Learning is reinforced with diverse example problems of increasing complexity. This empowers students with the self-confidence necessary to successfully tackle new problems throughout their careers.
