Owing to the concerns about electromagnetic interference (EMI) from wireless local area networks (WLAN), an investigation into its impact on medical equipment is carried out. The results indicate that there is no evidence of 802.11 Wireless LAN systems being unsafe for installation inside hospital premises and only one piece of equipment was found to be susceptible to IEEE 802.11b standard.
