The community concerns on the possible harmful effects of electromagnetic fields and the pending safe labor conditions in the Member States were substantiated by the European legislative body through the Directive 2004/40/EC on the workers’ exposure to hazards arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields) and the related minimum safety and health requirements. After a decade of intensive consultation and debate on practical implementation issues with representatives of national…

TLDR
Exposure to magnetic fields of industrial frequency in intensive care unit rooms at Al- Kadhimiya Hospital in Baghdad is described through a series of measurements in the environment where medical personnel perform their daily professional activities and patients must remain for several hours or days.
Eddy Currents Distribution in Upper Extremities During Magnetotherapy
The uncertainty problem is widely analyzed in context of current density distribution. However, the aim is focused on the influence of tissue electrical properties. The main aim of article is to

TLDR
The weighted peak method for assessing non-thermal effects of low frequency (LF) electric and magnetic fields is shown to be very practical and user friendly and absolutely reliable to lead to correct results when applied in the time domain.
Alternative functional relationships between ELF field exposure and possible health effects: report on an expert workshop.
TLDR
A structured survey and workshop were used to explore whether leading researchers in bioelectromagnetics share similar views about alternative possible effects functions and substantial agreement was found about several effects functions in a few specific contexts such as calcium-ion efflux and cell signalling, and biosynthesis pathways.

TLDR
A numerical listing of 18 separate parameters important to EMF exposure characterization is proposed and references are provided to examples of EMF exposures and to detailed discussions ofEMF exposure systems.
Experimental Indicators of Current Unbalance in Building-Integrated Photovoltaic Systems
TLDR
The results show that the unbalance cannot be considered negligible, even with no single-phase inverters and is more significant if nonlinear loads add a contribution to both harmonic distortion and unbalance seen from the distribution transformer.
