Physiological Measurement (PMEA)

Physiological Measurement celebrated its 30th year in 2009 and has built an international reputation for its coverage of biomedical sensors, instrumentation and systems in physiology and medicine.  Edited by Professor Xiao Hu, Professor in the School of Nursing at Duke University in North Carolina in the USA, and published in association with IoP Publishing, it covers the quantitative assessment and visualisation of physiological function in clinical research and practice, with an emphasis on the development of new methods of measurement and their validation.  Practical and theoretical papers are published in topics including:

  • measurement in applied physiology 
  • biomedical sensors
  • human biology and clinical medicine
  • instrumentation and methods of data analysis
  • clinical engineering
  • patient monitoring
  • life support systems and prosthetic devices
  • modeling and simulation as they apply to measurements
  • measurement of flow and pressure (for example blood flow, tissue perfusion and hemodynamics)
  • body composition (for example XRF, bone mineral density, ultrasound bone measurements)
  • bioMEMs and applications of microfabrication technology to biomedical measurements
  • physiological measurement at the cellular level.
