Biomedical Equipment

Biomedical equipment technology is a profession that requires broad knowledge of biomedical system instrumentation. On the job, a biomedical equipment technologist may work with machines used to diagnose and treat diseases or disorders, or those used to assist in the role of vital organs (e.g. a respirator). They often work under the supervision of biomedical engineers, performing such tasks as the evaluation, inspection, repair, maintenance, and installation of diverse instrumentation, including electrosurgical equipment; ultrasound devices; chemical analyzers; defibrillators; centrifuges; x-ray instrumentation; spectrophotometers; infusion pumps; heart , lung, and kidney dialysis machines; pacemakers ; infant incubators; respirators; blood pressure and heart rate monitors; and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI or NMR) machines.On the job, a biomedical equipment technologist may work with machines used to diagnose and treat diseases or disorders, or those used to assist in the role of vital organs (e.g. a respirator).

Solutions to issues encountered while interacting with doctors, nurses, and other technicians who use biomedical instrumentation are often studied and realized by those in the profession. A biomedical equipment technologist must study electronics, electronics management, medical physiology, and computer applications. After graduating, he or she may opt to specialize in particular types of equipment used, generally in nuclear medicine, surgery, radiology, clinical laboratory, dialysis, or intensive care.
