Essential Questions Key Terms 1. Project documentation involves many components. What are the components and why are they necessary for effective communication? 2. Why is laboratory safety so important? 3. In the event of an emergency in the laboratory, what steps should you take to keep yourself or your classmates safe? 4. If you were to measure incorrectly, how would you know and what could happen to your experiment results? 5. What is the difference between accuracy and precision? 6. How does accuracy and precision play a vital role in a design process? Project documentation includes the keeping of records during a project, and the presentation of those records in such a way that your project could be repeated in the future using those records as instructions. It is important to do this because, as an engineer, ones records are essential to making the product they design commensurable on a large scale. Laboratory safety is important because it is what keeps a person safe from dangerous chemicals or other objects during an experiment. In the event of a potentially dangerous situation, it is best to stay clear of the situation if any, rinse any chemicals in a chemo-shower, put out any fires with the appropriate fire extinguisher, and report the incident to the instructor. Incorrect measurements can cause faulty results in an experiment. One way to tell if there is an incorrect measurement is by doing multiple experiments with the same measurements and figuring our if the results are the same. Accuracy is the ability to get similar measurements in multiple trials and precision is the ability to get the same measurement in multiple trials. Without precision or accuracy, test results would be so inconclusive that experiments would be a waste of time and nothing would be created with the most efficiency possible. Biotechnical engineering is using biological and engineering concepts to fix and improve living systems Previous knowledge was used in those important events to help the event get a foundation for experimentation that would lead to the event becoming successful. People like Aristotle paved the way for advancements in the biotechnology field and events like the creation of penicillin revolutionized the world. The food industries is one of the biggest industries that make biotechnically engineering products. Biotechnical-engineered products can make production much faster and they can extend life by eliminating dangerous naturally occurring pathogens in the food. World events have an impact on biotechological advances because whenever something major happens, all the people affected must be taken care of. An example would be the viruses. Whenever a virus starts to become a pandemic in the world, researchers work to engineer a vaccine. One area of biotechnical engineering that has a direct impact on me is genetic engineering of food. Although the food is usually safe, sometimes the food can have some negative effects on our health. Fermentation rate can be measured by the amount of carbon dioxide that is produced. Since biological process are always changing, end product analysis is not always going to yield results. Waste products can be used to directly or indirectly power a vehicle. Elimination of contamination of the measured sample, safeguards against measuring the wrong waste product and accuracy of measured samples with theoretical products. Allowing the gases to escape, distillation of alcohol from the wastes and physical removal of the wastes. Compare the measured products to the theoretical products. The actual amount of gas produced in the yeast mobile was difficult to determine because it was not an actual closed system. Almost any vehicle can be fueled using renewable energy if it has a part to convert the energy to power. The patients using the medical equipment benefit most. Engineers apply engineering principles and knowledge of materials to the healthcare field. This could include designing computer and mathematical models and to design and test prototypes, working closely with medical professionals, conducting research, provide technical data and safety assurances among others. Physicians are important to communicate the needs of the device for the best interest of the patient; in effect the physician is an advocate for the patient. The design of the medical equipment must be such that nurses can easily use the equipment they need on a daily basis. Keyboards, controls, etc. must be human – oriented for ease and accuracy of use. Medical technicians must be able to understand the equipment they use and be able to train others on its use. Therefore the design process must account for the ease of use for the medical technician. Patients, by default, set the criteria for the design of the product (sizing, tissue compatibility, ease of replacement, etc.) The design of the equipment should be easy enough for support staff to use Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause. Product liability is taking blame for anything that goes wrong with a product. Engineers must take multiple measures to make sure the product is the most reliable thing that they can create. Over engineering is when a product is more robust or complicated than necessary for its application, either (charitably) to ensure sufficient factor of safety, sufficient functionality, or due to design errors. Over engineering is desirable when safety or performance on a particular criterion is critical. Since product liability is so important in the medical field, over engineering is an additional guarantee of product safety. Biomedical devices are often rapidly developed to hit the market quickly, so the product development lifecycle is sped up as much as possible. Also, many existing devices are improved as new and better materials are developed and as new technologies are developed. At the point of “continuous development” an engineer would look at how the existing product can be improved. Provide support for tissues and organs Provide shape for the body Protect the internal organs Produce in red bone marrow the blood cell or hemopoiesis Allow for storage of calcium by maintaining homeostasis of blood calcium Work with muscles to allow for movements Smooth muscles allow organs to function (swallowing), cardiac muscle pumps blood. Skeletal muscles contract and relax in unison to move the skeleton. ROM measurements are critical as well as muscle attachment sites. Axial skeleton (cranium and vertebrae) and the appendicular skeleton (all other bones). Immoveable, slightly moveable and freely moveable. Cranium; immoveable. Vertebral column; slightly moveble. Shoulder; freely moveable. Knowing ergonomics and comfortable and allowable body movements is important to design. The heart muscle is deprived of blood and does not contract as it should. The polarization, depolarization and repolarization of the atria and ventricles in proper sequence allows the heart to pump blood effectively. Stents and Valves. Pace makers and ECG’s. The electrical conduction of the chambers and muscle tissue of the heart, the measurements of valves and chambers of the heart. The DNA samples should be taken from a known organism by a technician so its source is known. They are compared by cataloging known nucleic acid samples. Engineering techniques allow the bioinformatics field to grow and develop and it increases the beneficial use of bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is the combination of computer technology with the science of biological information. Engineering procedures require knowledge of DNA so the engineering techniques will be successful. Comparing transformed organisms to known, untransformed control organisms and comparing the effects of transformation with the gene expression in the original organism. Consequences of actions need to be considered for the individual, for others, and for society as a whole. The human harm or potential human harm resulting from genetic engineering and potential future effects of genetic engineering need to be considered. pH, temperature, light, waste materials and local environmental effects. Comparing the compounds to a known standard to ensure quality, testing and retesting the compounds to ensure authenticity and taking random samples of the compounds during the manufacturing process.
