Rationale
The use of Biomedical instruments are increasing day by day in health care. Now days advanced, complex and precision biomedical instruments are being used in most of the hospitals. Diploma Instrumentation engineer are therefore also supposed to know about the biomedical instrumentation fundamentals, it is important as the students may get employment in hospitals where they will have to understand construction working application of different biomedical instruments. Hence this course has been designed to develop some of the basic skills in operation, test and maintenance of various biomedical instruments.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Operate biomedical instruments used in hospital
ii. Calibrate biomedical instruments used in hospital
iv. Test different biomedical instruments used in hospital
v. Understands different bio signals / potentials
