EWH Publications

How do you test a defibrillator without a defibrillation tester? How can you use a piece of chicken to test an electrosurgery unit? These are the types of questions that an engineer working in a developing world hospital asks every day. The proper test equipment isn't available, and the hospital has desperate and immediate needs.

To answer these questions, EWH has published Medical Instrumentation in the Developing World, written by Professor Bob Malkin. This book provides the kind of practical testing and repairing suggestions that engineers can use when in a poorly equipped hospital, far from a clinical engineering department. It is the only practical manual for equipment repair in the developing world currently available. Prof. Malkin is a co-founder and board member of EWH, and you can read his bio on the EWH Board page.

One copy of Medical Instrumentation in the Developing World is $59. Discounts for larger orders are available, as detailed below, and there is a $5/book discount for active EWH Chapters.
