Author Joseph Dyro has been awarded the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) Clinical/Biomedical Engineering Achievement Award which recognizes individual excellence and achievement in the clinical engineering and biomedical engineering fields. He has also been awarded the American College of Clinical Engineering 2005 Tom O'Dea Advocacy Award. As the biomedical engineering field expands throughout the world, clinical engineers play an evermore important role as the translator between the worlds of the medical, engineering, and business professionals. They influence procedure and policy at research facilities, universities and private and government agencies including the Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization. Clinical Engineers were key players in calming the hysteria over electrical safety in the 1970's and Y2K at the turn of the century and continue to work for medical safety. This title brings together all the important aspects of Clinical Engineering. It provides the reader with prospects for the future of clinical engineering as well as guidelines and standards for best practice around the world. * Clinical Engineers are the safety and quality faciltators in all medical facilities.
