Bioimpedance and Bioelectricity Basics

This page describes our textbook Bioimpedance and Bioelectricity Basics. The first edition was published in 2000, the second in 2008 and the third in 2015 (actually September 2014).


This book was originally written for our master and PhD students in order to give them a common ground in this cross-disciplinary field of research. We realized that the bioimpedance field lacked such a basic textbook and the first edition was hence published by Academic Press in 2000. A revision was published in 2008 and now the third edition is here. It is our hope that all bioimpedance researchers should feel that this book gives a balanced and complete description of our common foundation. Should you feel that important aspects of bioimpedance is missing or that significant research is not described (your own or others), then please contact us so that we can correct this in future editions. Furthermore, do not hesitate to contact us should you find errors that are not listed below or things that should be revised.

Page Description
Page 240, line 9 "megavoltage" should be "millivolts"
Page 289, figure 8.15 For the LP filter to actually work, it must be given a current path to ground or the opamp should be used as an inverting amplifier instead.
Page 440 - 444

These references on impedance cardiography were unfortunately left out in the reference list (p. 526 ff).
