Electrical safety testing was the first mandate of biomedical engineering, and why biomedical engineering was brought into the hospital as a functional area in the 1970’s. Today there are many electrical safety standards, most of which have been harmonized with the IEC standards found under IEC 60601. The basis standards (IEC 60601-1 and IEC 62353) are constantly under review and revision. Not only is it hard to keep up, it is also not easy to understand how to apply testing methodologies, or testing limits.
