Objective: To measure the electromagnetic emission of intensive care medical equipment, in order to assess whether a potentially dangerous magnetic flux is present around the patient, and to evaluate the exposure conditions of the patient to extremely-low-frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF EMF). Design: Descriptive study. Setting: Intensive care unit (ICU) at a general hospital. Measurement and results: The flux density of alternating (AC) 50-H2, EMF was measured and mapped around electrical… CONTINUE READING
