The large-scale assessment of the effects of ambient electromagnetic radiation on human, animal and plant health requires the coverage of large areas, which still exceed the capacity of conventional measurement methods.The aim of this study was to monitor the potential of electromagnetic pollution of some devices and systems used in medical procedures for diagnosis and veterinary therapy, in order to apply measures to protect staff and patients. The investigations consisted of the comparative monitoring of the electrosmog in six enclosures equipped with devices and veterinary medical equipment. The measurements were performed in three spectra of electromagnetic waves. The recorded values were the basis for assessing the polluting impact of the following devices: a surgical aspirator, two operating tables, an electrocautery, an automatic injector, an X-ray system, a computed tomography and a defibrillator. The analysis of the recorded values revealed the achievement of the maximum levels of the electrosmog around the telescopic tables and the automatic injectors. Roentgen and CT systems have proven to be less polluting, due to being designed and manufactured with efficient protection features. In conclusion, we propose the application of passive and active protection measures in rooms with high potential for electromagnetic pollution.
