To investigate the effects of electromagnetic pulsed field exposure to rabbits.
Parameters studied were pentobarbital-induced sleeping time, rectal temperature measured immediatly pre- and post-exposure and several serum parameters (among other things triglycerides, creatine kinase isoenzymes, sodium, and potassium).
|Exposure duration||continuous up to 2 h|
|Setup||Four styrofoam panels were placed between the plates to restrict the animals to the central region of the exposure chamber. Animals were placed in the center of the chamber on a plexiglas sheet|
|Additional info||The sheets were configured in such a way that the horizontal section used to expose animals had dimensions of 56 cm x 61 cm and a plate seperation of 19 cm, where as the remaineder of the plates section 58 x 61, the gap was narrowed to 6.4 mm and filled with polyethylene to provide capacitance. The EMP stimulator was located in a faraday cage.|
No parameters are specified for this exposure.
No consistent, statistically significant alterations were found in the endpoints investigated under the exposure conditions used.
