Unified Medical Language System. UMLS consists of Knowledge Sources (databases) and a set of software tools.

Unified Medical Language System

The UMLS was designed and is maintained by the US National Library of Medicine, is updated quarterly and may be used for free. The project was initiated in 1986 by Donald A. B. Lindberg, M.D., then and current Director of the Library of Medicine. Purpose and applications[edit] The number of biomedical resources available to researchers is enormous.

Licensing[edit] Users of the system are required to sign a "UMLS agreement" and file brief annual usage reports. Knowledge Sources[edit] [edit] The Metathesaurus forms the base of the UMLS and comprises over 1 million biomedical concepts and 5 million concept names, all of which stem from the over 100 incorporated controlled vocabularies and classification systems. The scope of the Metathesaurus is determined by the scope of the source vocabularies.

Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) Radiation. Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) Radiation Extremely low frequency (ELF) fields includes alternating current (AC) fields and other electromagnetic, non-ionizing radiation from 1 Hz to 300 Hz.

Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) Radiation

ELF fields at 60 Hz are produced by power lines, electrical wiring, and electrical equipment. Some epidemiological studies have suggested increased cancer risk associated with magnetic field exposures near electric power lines. There are currently no specific OSHA standards that address extremely low frequency (ELF) fields. Standards There are national consensus standards and standards from the United Kingdom (UK) which OSHA could consider referencing in a general duty clause citation. Air and Radiation.
