Due to a lack of financial resources, we unfortunately have to suspend the import of any new radio frequency and mobile phone-related articles as of now (November 27, 2017). We apologize for this inconvenience and will keep you informed.

Because we received a large number of inquiries, we set up a bank account to accept donations. With their aid, we hope to resume, at least partly, the import of newly published articles to the RF archive of the EMF-Portal. Any contribution is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your kind support!

Time of occurrence of the injuries

The consequences of an electric injury may occur immediately or be delayed. Examples of immediate (within a few hours or days) occurring injuries are burns, necrosis, cardiac arrhythmias, seizures as well as motor and sensory deficits. Delayed injuries are mainly neuropathy, cataracts, depression and neuropsychological sequels such as behavioral changes, concentration difficulties and anxiety. These late-onset sequels may occur after several months or even years after the electric injury and it is therefore difficult to diagnose them as a sequel because the treating physician has to establish the connection between the symptoms and the earlier electrical injury.
