Larry Fennigkoh, Ph.D.

"The Scientific Reality and Irrelevance of Medical Device Leakage Currents"

Adjunct Professor-Biomedical Engineering Milwaukee School of Engineering

Since its beginning, the HTM profession has and continues to devote an enormous amount of its precious resources and time to the measurement of device leakage or ‘touch’ currents. While the codes and standards requiring such measurements have relaxed, such measurements have become inextricably associated with ‘electrical safety’ and continue to be an integral but completely unnecessary task during routine PM inspections. Based upon well-established AC circuit principles and the human response to electrical currents, this session with show why the routine measurement of device leakage currents can be eliminated without any decrease in patient safety.
