  1. Threshold of sensation for 60-Hz leakage current: results of a survey.

    Article - En anglais

    Canadian regulations have set a limit of 100 muA on leakage currents permitted to flow from patient-applied parts of an electromedical device under single-fault conditions, while international standards, such as International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 601-1, have set the limit of 500 muA under the same conditions.

    The authors investigates the question of whether 500 muA would compromise safety, or would be unpleasant or painful for the patient. 500 muA currents are more than sufficient to induce pain in healthy adult volunteers, and that currents greater than 100 muA can evoke a definite sensation.
