The influence of the call with a mobile phone on heart rate variability parameters in healthy volunteers.
Published in: Ind Health 2008; 46 (4): 409-417
Aim of study (acc. to author)
continuous for 20 min
(tested by the manufacturer)
semi-darkened, temperature-controlled quiet laboratory at room temperature (21°C)
GSM mobile phone was held in the right hand during the call. It was switched on during the whole time of the experiment so that the effect of logging into the mobile phone network on the maximal emission of EMF could be avoided.
Recordings were made over three 20 min periods, i.e., before, during, and after the telephone call.
