Bioelectricity: Generation and Conduction Class - Matthieu Boardman
Monday, September 14, 2009 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Explore the rapidly growing field of bioelectronic devices and get a chance to build your own EKG machine. Come learn how implantable pacemakers and defibrillators track and control heart rhythms, and allow doctors to hack patient biorhythms remotely via a combined internet and RF communication channel. Additionally, the science of pacing and defibrillation therapies will be discussed along with a demonstration of the effects of therapeutic electrical shocks.
There will be a kit available to build. Purchasing the kit is not required. If you do purchase a kit, you will want to bring a laptop to view the output from the ECG. No tools are required.
