The aim of the present study was to test whether the electromagnetic field emitted by standard GSM mobile phones results in changes in heart rate (HR) and heart rate variability (HRV) of 35 healthy young male and female subjects. Two parallel signals, electrocardiogram and infrared surface plethysmogram were recorded and compared to test their validity for the analysis. Plethysmographic recording is proved to be a fast and reliable method for HRV measurements. In the radiofrequency (RF) exposure study, there was no significant difference in the values of HR and HRV between the RF and the sham groups. Our preliminary study demonstrates that, in our experimental conditions, RF fields emitted by cellular phones do not cause observable effects on the regulation of heart rate of healthy, young adults.
