AIM  Standard 7351731 Rev. 3.00 2021-06-04
Medical Electrical Equipment and System Electromagnetic Immunity Test for Exposure to Radio Frequency Identification Readers - An AIM Standard
The purpose of this AIM Standard document is to provide test methods and test levels for the evaluation of the electromagnetic immunity of (non-implantable) medical electrical equipment and systems to electromagnetic emissions from radio frequency identification (RFID) readers.

For the purposes of this AIM Standard, other technologies such as Wi-Fi and ultra-wideband (UWB) are not considered. It focuses on the most common RFID technologies currently deployed in healthcare environments.

This document can also provide guidance to RFID solution designers and medical facility engineers and administrators, which can help them determine whether the medical electrical equipment or system and the RFID solution environment are compatible.
