Prerequisite
Human anatomy and physiology, Control system & analysis, Physics, Higher Engineering Mathematics
Rationale
The purpose of this course is to acquaint each student with the knowledge of modelling a physiological system and enable them to and thereby enable them to understand its interactions with various other system, and dependency on various conditions affecting its stability & behaviour.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to do:
1. Build on a basic understanding of physiology (from pre-requisites) to develop a more indepth level of understanding that will enable engineering analysis of selected physiological systems.
2. Be able to translate the understanding of physiological function into an engineering model based on blockdiagram analysis of a dynamic system whose function is based on a differential equation.
3. Develop skill in applying a high-level engineering tool for block diagram modeling (SIMULINK).
4. Be able to apply engineering models of physiological systems to answer questions relevant to the design of biomedical engineering devices or processes.
5. Be able to apply basic principles of steady-state and dynamic negative feedback control to physiological systems.
6. Be able to recognize the difference between the roles of variables and parameters in a model.
7. Be able to break down a complex physiological system into the function of its component subsystems, and then build an engineering model based on subsystems.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
