Abstract

Background : Different regions of radio frequency spectrum of electromagnetic waves have various physiological effects on biological systems. Since short wave is routinely used as a therapeutic means to elevate deep body temperature, it seemed worthwhile to investigate the none thermal effects of this frequency band. Materials and methods : For this experimental study, 42 normal individuals aged 20-30 years were selected. The nerve latency was measured at the left wrist before and after 10 minutes exposure to the lowest field intensity to assure minimal thermal effect. Paired t-test was used for data analysis. Results : Small variation has minimal effect on latency values. 95 of the subjects demonstrated latency change due to the field. The 8.56 difference between the latencies measured before and after applying the field was statistically significant. The difference has lasted for 11 minutes. Conclusion: Short wave radio frequency does influence on nerve latency. Further studies are strongly recommended.
