Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article analyzes the development of bioethics and biomedical engineering as complementary branches between them, because there is a direct relationship between decision-making and the concepts that apply in both sciences, so it is taken into account which are the practices and fields in which the biomedical engineer works, The main principles and duties of bioethics that intervene in biomedicine are also taken into account, thus reaching an evaluation through an inductive method that takes as its main idea an inference within the codes of ethics, which are directly applied in the development of the biomedical engineer's activities, Nowadays, the biomedical engineer must understand the importance of knowing these topics, since his professional practice is directly involved at the moment of performing a treatment or diagnosis of a living being, these topics should not act separately since the commitment and quality of a professional practice is reflected in the care and preservation of life in all its moments, besides seeing the importance of having codes that apply to his practice so that it is not overshadowed by bad decisions, and that its development is implemented beyond the economic part and that the human ethical part endures.
