This paper proposes modeling and a method to assess the RF interference in hospital areas. Field-strength measurement has been done inside and outside of two main hospitals in Bangkok at frequencies between 55 and 1918 MHz, and the data were compared to fields predicted using the proposed models. The measured fields generally remained below 1 V/m. The outside mode prediction method provided a worst-case estimation of the electromagnetic environmental hazard. The modeling method predicted fields… CONTINUE READING
