Now a day’s electronic systems are extensively used in the medical field and many researches are being conducted in the Medical Electronics fields. The Medical Electronic equipments are usually mended for the assistance during the diagnosis of diseases, for monitoring the medical conditions, for the management of medical database and also for using as the life support equipments. We have diagnostic equipments such as ultrasound, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) machines, PET (Positron Emission Tomography) x-ray scanners, includes medical imaging machines, used to aid in diagnosis. Then another category of medical instruments is the Therapeutic equipments which includes infusion pumps, medical lasers and LASIK surgical machines. Life support equipment such as, medical ventilators, heart-lung machines, ECMO (Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation), and dialysis machines, is used maintain a patient's bodily function. Medical monitors allow medical staff to measure a patient's medical state. Monitors may measure patient vital signs and other parameters including ECG (Electrocardiograph), EEG (Electroencephalogram), blood pressure, and dissolved gases in the blood. And finally we have medical laboratory equipments to analyze blood, urine and genes.
