Non-ionizing radiation and changes in the microclimate of the working place.
SITHOK - 3 : Slovensko Drustvo Inzenirjev za tehnologijo hlajenja, ogrevanja in klimatizacije. Mednarodni kongres. Maribor, SVN, 1998/05/09.
Electromagnetic pollution of the environment, and of living quarters in particular, represents one of the greatest present day sources of microclimate pollution.
Neon lighting and the radiation of individual electronic devices such as computers, printers etc. causes changes in ionic tension in a room and thereby peripheral irritation of nociceptor nerve endings in the skin.
Irritation of these nerve endings results in muscle spasm, poorer circulation, the accumulation of metabolic products with a consequent decrease in working concentration, the occurrence of chronic pain and in the final phase disablement.
Measuring of non-ionizing radiation in a certain room still represents a technical challenge.
At the Maribor Teaching Hospital Department of Medical Rehabilitation, the impact of such radiation was demonstrated by adequate measurements and proved by laboratory analysis of peripheral blood and EEG.
It was established that under the influence of electronic pollution blood pressure increases by almost 15%, and particularly that a change in blood serotonin causes a change in reaction capacity and thus a decrease in the working capacity.
