Abstract : In the future, strong magnetic fields will play a greater role in the environment of man. In preparation for this the frontal plane ECG of subhuman primates in strong magnetic fields (100,000 oersted) was recorded. A pulsating electrical signal (flowgram) was found superimposed on the ECG, giving information on mechanical as well as electrical performance of the heart. No influence of the magnetic field on cardiac regulation was observed during short exposure periods. (Author)
