Abstract

Uncontrolled electrostatic discharge (ESD) sources may cause unpleasant experiences as well as more serious hazards to health. We have observed surprisingly high energy ESD sources in the hospital environment. These findings are analyzed and discussed in this article. In addition, electrostatic attraction and charge relaxation of materials for medical purposes are studied and solutions are proposed.
