There are different types of bio-medical instruments.
Biomedical Engineering is defined as a branch of sciences .
Bio-medical is an emerging field and it tries to cover a gap between medical sciences and engineering.
The Most Currently Used Equipment-Technologies.
Main Courses to be Studied Within it (elective courses).
Three of the Worldwide Universities or Research Centers.
Professional Society.
Work Field for the Graduates.
Recent Break Through in this Field.
What is Bioinstrumentation ?
The Most Currently Used Equipment-Technologies:
The bioinstrumentation laboratory is specifically used for taking measurements in the health and biomedical science. Many equipment's and machines are used in this field such as:

1. Electrocardiography

2. Electroencephalogram

Electrocardiography (ECG)

An ECG machine is used to measure the electrical conduction of the heart.
The main purpose of ECG:

Electroencephalogram (EEG)
An electroencephalogram detects abnormalities in the brain waves or electrical activity of the brain. It is employed to record the oscillations of brain and its electronic potential records. The signals are recorded using electrodes attached to human scalp and this input is transferred to EEG system.

elective courses:
To detect heart problems, including a recent or ongoing heart attacks.

Also it is used to detect noncardiac conditions such as electrolyte imbalances and lung diseases.
In addition, it is used to monitor recovery from a heart attack, progressing of heart diseases, or the effectiveness of certain heart medications.

Finally, it is used to rule out hidden heart disease in patients about to undergo surgery.

Dr.sahar El-kafife

provides leadership through exceptional educational programs and experiences
The Bioinstrumentation Lab in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah is pleased to be associated with two diverse groups, the Rocky Mountain Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (RMCOEH) and the Robotics Program at the University of Utah. 
The university of UTAH in U.S.A
(  Master )
University of Wisconsin in U.S.A
In university of Wisconsin, the BME undergraduate degree emphasizes engineering design in preparation for employment in biomedical industries

North Carolina state university
Professional Society
The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES):
Professional Society
an organization for professionals who service and support devices in the healthcare industry.

Medical Equipment & Technology Association (META):
a society cares biomedical and engineering needs
Professional Society
The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE):

a non-profit organization in Washington, D.C., represent 50,000 individuals and the top 2% of medical and biological engineers.
Work Field
Can work in:
research facilities of educational and medical institutions

Can work as :
Create new medical devise and operate
research and development section.
work in sale field for any corporations that make medical devices such as, Covidien , Boston Scientific and Johnson & Johnson.
speaking biomedical engineering is an emerging science that makes use of engineering designs and medical knowledge to produce technique and equipment’s that can best serve the health care system.
