We are pleased to announce that, thanks to the financial support of our valuable
users, we are able once again, to import articles from the radio frequency range into
the EMF-Portal. Fortunately, we could close the gap in our literature inventory and
all newly published articles released up to April 30, 2018 have been included. In
order that we are able to import further publications released in the future, please
help us with your donation. Thank you very much!
From a total of 251 healthy volunteers recruited from the hospital staff, 148 subjects (85 women and 63 men) were included in the study. The inclusion criteria were age >18 years, an interference-free 24-h ECG and the volunteer's consent. Subjects were divided into 4 groups according to the duration of mobile phone use: 1) < 30 minutes/day (n=37), 2) 30 - 60 minutes/day (n=37), 3) > 60 minutes/day (n=39), 4) no mobile phone use (control group; n=35). All participants (except for the control group) had been using mobile phones for > 10 years prior to the study.
daily durations of mobile phone use were calculated automatically by dividing the total duration of calls (total minutes within a month) into the number of telephone calls (total number within a month)
