Abstract

Objective: In this study, we conducted a numerical analysis of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in a hospital's intensive care unit that is one of the most crucial one in terms of hazardous areas among all service units. This is a new study for measuring exposure to EMFs in an intensive care unit as well as other healthcare services in Turkey.
