The aim of this research was to identify the interactions between Earth’s local time varying magnetic field and cardiovascular system parameters in women, performing sedentary work, during their workweek.
The tasks of research: 1. To examine the relationship between the Earth’s local magnetic field and the electrocardiographic parameters of women performing sedentary work, during the workweek. 2. To examine the relationship between the Earth’s local magnetic field and arterial blood pressure of women performing sedentary work, during the work week.
The methods used: Electrocardiographic monitoring and arterial blood pressure measurement. The Earth’s magnetic field data was obtained using a magnetometer located in the town of Baisogala. Every female was assessed four times: before and after work on Monday, before and after work on Friday of the same week.
Participants of the research: The research group consisted of 21 females who perform sedentary work (average age ± SD – 50.1±9.5 years).
Conclusions of the research: 1. The most significant correlations between local GMF and ECG and arterial blood pressure parameters were found with the low frequency field, the most often in SDelta [0-3.5] Hz and STheta [3.5-7] Hz bands. 2. The correlations between ECG parameters (RR, JT and QRS intervals ant ST amplitude) during the workweek changed from negative to positive, which appears to be associated with fatigue influence on person sensitivity to local GMF. 3. Systolic and diastolic arterial blood pressure changed in different ways. The correlations between local GMF and diastolic arterial blood pressure were especially pronounced. 4. All ECG and arterial blood pressure parameters showed great variability in correlation with local GMF. It can be associated with changing human sensitivity to GMF due to increasing fatigue.
