Basic Transport Phenomena in Biomedical Engineering, Fourth Edition, brings together fundamental engineering and life science principles, with specific attention paid to the momentum and mass transport concepts applicable to the design of medical devices. Such an analysis highlights the chemical and physical transport processes used in the development of artificial organs, bioartificial organs, controlled drug delivery systems, and tissue engineering. Basic Transport Phenomena in Biomedical Engineering, Fourth Edition, furthermore provides a basic review of units and dimensions with some tips for solving engineering problems; an investigation of thermodynamic concepts with an emphasis on the properties of solutions; and an in-depth exploration of body fluids, osmosis and membrane filtration, the physical and flow properties of blood, solute transport, oxygen transport, and pharmacokinetic analysis. This text is written with curious and inquisitive students in mind who wish to develop their skill and expertise in biomedical engineering. Basic Transport Phenomena in Biomedical Engineering, Fourth Edition, is likewise advantageous to students in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, biotechnology, bioengineering, medicine, life sciences, as well as those involved with all facets of the biomedical engineering community.
