Transcript of Biomedical Engineering

What is it?
Biomedical Engineering is defined as the application of engineering principles to the fields of biology and medicine, in the development of aids or replacements for malfunctioning or missing body organs and enhancing bodily functions. It also can be called bioengineering.
What do they do?
Biomedical engineers analyze and design solutions to problems in biology, healthcare, and medicine with a goal of improving the quality and effectiveness of patient care and the lives of patients.
What do they do?
Although I knew the basic gist of the field, I found out in my research exactly what is was.

It deals less with the chemical and medicine side of things, and more with the development of prosthetics and other devices that enhance sight, bodily functions, etc. But I find both sides very interesting.

2. The Camera Pill

The camera pill is a regular sized pill that has a high definition color video camera on one end. It can be used to detect early signs of cancer and any other problem in the stomach or liver. It is less costly and dangerous because it doesn't require anesthesia or sedation.

3. Bionic Contact Lens

Scientists at Washington University managed to mix a contact with an electric circuit. The invention allows the user to see the world by superimposing pictures into their natural view. So in other words, it almost projects an image into the field of view.

1. The Abiocore Artificial Heart

In 2001, scientists in Louisville Kentucky implanted an artificial heart into a man. The heart didn't have have a connection to something outside the body, and there were no cords so regular daily activity is possible.

Occupation Outlook
The field of biomedical engineering continuously is growing. With a growing population and a growing number of illnesses and medical problems, the possibilities are endless.
Who benefits?
This kind of engineering directly or indirectly would effect everyone. The creations could help wounded soldiers, cancer patients (or future cancer patients), and other illnesses. Cancer has the highest mortality rate for an illness and a main focus of bioengineering is creating treatments to prevent and cure cancer.

Degree and Where to Get One
For a job in biomedical engineering, a degree in the field is required. The best biomedical engineering degrees come from the following schools:
1. Johns Hopkins
2. Georgia Tech
3. UC San Diego
4. Duke
5. MIT

The pay out of college is about 90,000 dollars. Once you get into it the pay well exceeds that into 6 figures. The field is predicted to increase by 30 percent in just 10 years. Which is more than double that of doctors, and 4 times that of aerospace engineering.

To sum things up, bioengineering is a field focused on constantly creating newer technology to help people in need of medical care.
My Approach
So I figured there was no better way to approach this than to just research it on google. I used biomedical.com and many other websites as an aid for my research.
My Recommendation
I personally found my research method very effective because of the amount of websites and knowledge that is available on the internet and I also found recommendations on the internet of what sites were the most helpful
