Champs électromagnétiques extrêmement basse fréquence en pédiatrie néonatale

Abstract : Objective : The main objective of this study was to perform CEMEBF measures within and around various medical devices in different neonatal departments, in order to evaluate the CEMEBF emission level of these devices. The secondary objective was to provide practical tools for health professionals, enabling them to meet the precautionary principle by reducing the exposure of children to CEMEBF without increasing their workload. Methods : We created different specific protocols based on the type of device tested. All measurements were carried out using a measuring low frequency fields ME3951A at CHI Poissy St-Germain-en-Laye. Results and conclusion : There is considerable variability in the emission levels of these devices, and those, even within the same appliance category. The majority of incubators medical tested show higher emission levels at 400 nT in, at least, one region of the incubator. Phototherapy devices for "panels" show reassuring emission levels. Phototherapy devices in "tunnels" show an emission gradient which decreases gradually when approching the front of the device. The other tested devices provide us the information that respecting a safety distance of about 40 cm is sufficient in most cases not to expose children to higher CEMEBF 400 nT.
