The first half of this book presents fundamental electronics. The level of sophistication is below that found in a college physics textbook. Twice as many pages are devoted to vacuum tube theory as are given to solid-state circuit devices. No mention is made of the field-effect transistor or operational amplifier.
The second half of the book presents a series of brief descriptions of instruments used in cardiology, including the electrocardiograph, defibrillator, pacemaker, pressure transducer, paramagnetic oxygen analyzer, ultrasoundcardiograph, and infrared analyzer. A brief explanation of the principle and use of each device is given. Little attempt is made to acquaint
