Abstract

A signal is a phenomenon that conveys information. Biomedical signals are signals, used in biomedical fields, mainly for extracting information on a biologic system under investigation. The complete process of information extraction may be as simple as a physician estimating the patient’s mean heart rate by feeling, with the fingertips, the blood pressure pulse or as complex as analyzing the structure of internal soft tissues by means of a complex CT machine.
