Guideline of the Austrian Medical Association for the diagnosis and treatment of EMF-related health problems and illnesses (EMF syndrome)

Austrian EMF Medical Guidelines

On March 3, 2012, the Austrian Medical Association (ÖAK) released guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of EMF-related health problems and illnesses:

http://www.aerztekammer.at/documents/10618/976981/EMF-Guideline.pdf

It was great to see that the work of various CHE-EMF partners is quoted in this guideline.

The suggested treatment protocol includes:
1 History of health problems and EMF exposure
2 Examination and findings
3 Measurement of EMF exposure
4 Prevention or reduction of EMF exposure
5 Diagnosis
6 Treatment

In addition to basic diagnostic tests, for example, 24-hour monitoring of blood pressure (absence of nighttime decline), ECG, and heart variability is recommended.

EMF exposure level testing and subsequent reduction strategies are a major component of this guideline. Recommended threshold levels (e.g. SBM-2008) and EMF testing protocols (e.g. VDB Guidelines) are based on the building biology approach.

AC magnetic fields
within normal limits < 20 nT or 0.2 mG ... significant concern > 400 nT or 4 mG

AC electric fields
within normal limits < 0.3 V/m ... significant concern > 10 V/m

RF radiation
within normal limits < 1 µW/m2 ... significant concern > 1000 µW/m2

In contrast to the Nordic Council of Ministers http://www.norden.org/en/publications/publikationer/2000-839, which
suggested in 2010 to use ICD-10 codes R00-R99 ''symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings not elsewhere classified'' and specifically R68.8, the ÖAK recommends to use Z58.4 ''exposure to radiation.''

The primary treatment consists of reducing EMF exposures. In addition, lifestyle coaching (e.g. exercise, nutrition, sleep habits, stress reduction), holistic therapies (e.g. antioxidant therapies), and treatment of symptoms (until the cause(s) have been identified and eliminated) are also recommended.
