"BMET" stands for "BioMedical (Equipment/Electronics/Engineering) (Technician/Technologist)"
Basically the people who repair medical equipment. This wiki is where Biomed's can exchange knowledge and provide education about our profession, including information about workshops, symposiums, vendors/OEMs, regulatory agencies/standards, tools, courses, associations, and more wiki stuff.
Wi-Fi (pronounced /ˈwaɪfaɪ/) is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance for certified products based on the IEEE 802.11 standards. This certification warrants interoperability between different wireless devices. In some countries (and in this article) the term Wi-Fi is often used by the public as a synonym for IEEE 802.11-wireless LAN (WLAN).

A resistor ((Ω) symbol)) is an electronic component that resists, restricts, or opposes the flow of current.It can be visualized as constriction or narrowing in a pipe, where the constricted area is the resistance (resistor), and the flow of water is current. The volume of water flow following a constriction in a water pipe is reduced.
Association of the Month
Ohio Clinical Engineering Association
Ohio Clinical Engineering Association (OCEA) started in 1974 as a group of hospital engineers who were a part of a joint Safety Committee group of the Greater Cleveland Hospital Association. These engineers had a disagreement with the City of Cleveland over testing laboratory requirements for Medical Equipment that was in use in the city. After this disagreement was resolved, these engineers continued to meet on a regular basis and the organization Clinical Engineering Technology Association CETA was formed.
