58 Biomedical Engineer Questions and Answers:

1 :: What is myoelectric control?

Myoelectric control uses the signals from a residual limb for the movement of the prosthetics. Myoelectric control technologies obtain signals from the skin on the limbs.

2 :: What is microarrays. How are they related to DNA?

Microarrays are matrix in the form of arrays where DNA oligonucleotides of DNA sequences are spotted. They can be used for gene expression profiling, single nucleotide polymorphism detection, detection of alternative splicing and for various other purposes. Microarrays have the capability to perform hybridization of coda with the help of probes. A microarray chip is capable to perform a large set of genetic related experiments concurrently.

3 :: Tell me about your experiences at your previous hospital? What equipment did you work on the most?

In my experience at the previous hospital, I learned how to maintain test, calibrate, and repair the medical devices, such as electro surgical unit, defibillators, and infusion pumps.

4 :: What is BMI?

BMI is Body Mass Index. It is a comparison of a person's height and weight. It is a person's weight divided by the square of the height. Its SI unit is kg/sq.m.

5 :: How have you expressed enthusiasm for your career in the past?

Each day is challenging and all issues we come across are new.

6 :: Explain what is MRI?

MRI is Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It is a medical imaging technique that gives a detailed structure of internal organs, especially soft tissues. MRI uses a strong magnetic field and generates images and models of the specified organ.

7 :: Are you worried that remote diagnostics will replace your job? Tell me why it won't?

A remote diagnostics may assess a device's status, yet cannot rectify the issue in real world, real time.

8 :: Explain the difference between gram positive and gram negative bacteria?

In gram staining protocol, gram positive bacteria are stained dark blue or violet. Crystal violet stain can be retained by the gram positive bacteria because of the high amount of the peptidoglycan in the cell wall. Gram-positive cell walls typically lack the outer membrane found in Gram-negative bacteria.
In gram staining protocol, gram negative bacteria do not retain crystal violet dye. Gram negative bacteria have pathogenic capability. Gram negative bacteria have cytoplasmic membrane which is not present in gram positive bacteria.

9 :: What are the commonly used technologies in medical imaging?

Electron microscopy, Computer Tomography, radiography, thermography, nuclear medicine, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, Positron Emission Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

10 :: Are you at the point in your career where you are ready to write a manual for all newcomers to the field?

No. I am a newcomer to the field and have a strong desire to learn and master the field that someday I can write the manual for newcomers.
