    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This recommended practice is a guide to evaluating the electromagnetic immunity of medical devices to radiated radio-frequency (RF) emissions from common RF transmitters (e.g., two-way radios; walkie-talkies; mobile phones; wireless-enabled tablets, e-readers, laptop computers, and similar devices; radio-frequency identification (RFID) readers; networked mp3 players; two-way pagers; and wireless personal digital assistants [PDAs]).
