biotelemetry


Also found in: Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

biotelemetry

 [bi″o-tel-em´ĕ-tre]
the use of telemetry to record and measure certain vital phenomena occurring in living organisms.

bi·o·te·lem·e·try

(bī'ō-tel-em'ĕ-trē),
The technique of monitoring vital processes and transmitting data without wires to a point remote from the subject.

biotelemetry

/bio·te·lem·e·try/ (bi″o-tĕ-lem´ĕ-tre) the recording and measuring of certain vital phenomena of living organisms that are situated at a distance from the measuring device.

biotelemetry

(bī′ō-tə-lĕm′ĭ-trē)
n.
The monitoring, recording, and measuring of a living organism's basic physiological functions, such as heart rate, muscle activity, and body temperature, by the use of telemetry techniques.

biotelemetry

[-təlem′ətrē]
the transmission of physiological data, such as electrocardiographic (ECG) and electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings, heart rate, and body temperature by radio or telephone systems. Transmission of such data uses sophisticated electronic devices developed for the study of the effects of space travel on animals and humans; it has progressed to the use of communication satellites for relaying such data from one part of the world to another.

biotelemetry

A generic term for locating and tracking of an animal by an electronic device with the recording of data at a peripheral site.

bi·o·te·lem·e·try

(bī'ō-tĕ-lem'ĕ-trē)
The technique of monitoring vital processes and transmitting data without wires to a point remote from the subject.

bi·o·te·lem·e·try

(bī'ō-tĕ-lem'ĕ-trē)
The tech-nique of monitoring vital processes and transmitting data without wires to a point remote from the subject.

biotelemetry

the recording and measuring of certain vital phenomena occurring in living organisms that are at a distance from the recording device.

Out of this Kafkaesque dual reality, Andrew Heintzman paints a canvas that is really a political manifesto (think Thomas Friedman's Hot, Flat and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution--And How It Can Renew America) for a green economy, disguised as a book about a new class of entrepreneurs, written in the first--person style of a journey reminiscent of Thomas Homer Dixon's The Ingenuity Gap: Facing the Economic, Environmental, and Other Challenges of an Increasingly Complex and Unpredictable World, with a smattering of Douglas Coupland's green futurism and Popular Mechanics--style descriptions of things such as biotelemetry, which, if you were wondering, is key to measuring and preserving our natural capital.
