Exposure Assessment of Nonionizing Radiation Sources to Protect Workers With Implanted Medical Devices (AIHce EXP 2019 OnDemand)

Recorded at AIHce EXP 2019

Earn 1 Contact Hour

Certain types of nonionizing radiation (NIR) can interfere with the performance of medically implanted devices (e.g., cardiac pacemakers). As prologue to case-studies of how such interference can be addressed and avoided, the specific types and sources of NIR of concern will be described together with applicable exposure guidelines, and related industrial hygiene considerations. An overview of the three primary heart device manufacturer guidelines and restrictions for workers will be detailed and compared to the ACGIH TLV. Two case scenarios will be described, where accommodation of work restrictions was easily implemented and where accommodation of the worker was more difficult to achieve. An assessment of areas of concern in a pulp and paper facility with a worker returning with a medically implanted device will be described in detail, including the scope of work, methods used, results, and recommendations made.
