The rapid developments on the field of engineering are one of the most characteristic
features of our days. Not only in general engineering but it is also true for the surgical
instruments. The topic of my degree work is a device which helps the benchmark
testing, and testing of a patient-monitoring instrument. With the support of this new
tester the in- and after production testing of patient-monitoring instruments are far more
easier. As a consequence the testing became cheaper and more effective as the testing
crew can examine more devices under the given time.
My task was to keep the register of the documentation of the developing process, which
gives a clear picture of the device’s expediency. It also writes down the steps of the
developing process, elucidates the details of the implementation and the methodic of the
In accordance with the module’s tasks I had to make the device’s specifications and
then in compliance with these my task was to choose the appropriate parts and I also
had to prove their optimality. With the chosen parts my next task was to design the
module (Schematic), after that to make the drawing of the printed circuit board (PCB).
After that I had to mount in the complete PCB and to make it work. The designing and
coding of the operating program were also the parts of my work.
Furthermore I had to outline the calibration of the tester, after that the evaluation of the
tester’s accuracy, and I had to write a schematic description of the possible hidden
problems which may still be possible despite the use of the tester. As a project closing I
had to present suggestions for further development.
Thankfully to my task I had a chance to glance into the world of medical science, and I
could follow up a whole developing process. In addition with the mounting and using of
the module I could also gain immense experience on this field.
The module is ready, and a working prototype is available.
