Introduction to Clinical Engineering focuses on the application of engineering practice within the healthcare delivery system, often defined as clinical engineering. Readers will explore the fundamental concepts integral to the support of healthcare technology to advance medical care. The primary mission of clinical engineers is the utilization of medical devices, software, and systems to deliver safe and effective patient care throughout technology’s lifecycle. This unique and interdisciplinary workforce is part of the healthcare team and serves as the intersection between engineering and medicine.

This book is aimed at practitioners, managers, students, and educators to serve as a resource that offers a broad perspective of the applications of engineering principles, regulatory compliance, lifecycle planning, systems thinking, risk analysis, and resource management in healthcare. This book is an invaluable tool for healthcare technology management (HTM) professionals and can serve as a guide for students to explore the profession in depth.
