Abstract:

The object of this report is to establish the theoretical range of radio frequency impedance of the human body in the 1 - 30 MHz range. The report defines whole body rf impedance, summarized available specific tissue impedance data, and predicts likely values of total body impedance for various electrode sizes and locations from known specific tissue data and skin impedance. The report also discusses the relation of body impedance to electrode impedance, skin impedance and specific body impedance.
