The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMFs) on platelet aggregation (PA) in individuals working for a long time under a direct and continuous RF-EMF exposure. We examined 119 persons aged from 22 to 65 years. In individuals working under the direct and constant exposure to RF-EMFs, the various changes of PA with a predominance of hyperaggregation are detected. The dependence of the changes in the indicators of PA on length of work in conditions of RF-EMF exposure is determined.
