Abstract

The recommended limiting values of human exposure are much higher than the thresholds of immunity required by the standards of electromagnetic compatibility. It is thus impossible to guarantee the total absence of interference risk. So initially, the medico-legal responsibility suggested proscribing the aptitude for a potential exposure, the importance of psychosocial problems raised by such a step forces to better quantify this risk which appears altogether weak with the collective: experiment. The principal sources of professional exposure and the levels of corresponding fields are presented, as well as' current knowledge on the sensitivity of pacemakers and defibrillators with respect to these fields. Finally, information to be supplemented and the means of mitigating it are suggested.
