What is EMF Testing?

Electromagnetic Field Testing

EMF testing is the science of observing and measuring the electromagnetic fields in our physical environment.  Electromagnetic field range from extremely low frequency fields (ELF) such as those generated by electric powerlines to radiofrequency fields produced by cell towers, radio towers and other broadcasting antennas.

 

EMF is often a concern to the residents in large cities such as New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago because of their close proximity to the places where people live.

 

Electromagnetic field interference (EMI) is a potential area of concern.  EMI occurs when an electronic device such as a pacemaker or defibrillator malfunctions due to interference from electrical devices such as motors or radiofrequency signals from two-way radios.

 

Boston Scientific CRM, Medtronic CRDM, and Abbott Technical Services CRM (formerly St. Jude Medical) have published standards for EMI.  Electromagnetic fields are known to interfere with electronic medical implants such as: pacemakers, defibrillators, brain stimulators, insulin pumps as well as glucose monitors.
