This communication proposes a rationale for maximum pulsed magnetic field limits in the electromagnetic-field standards of IEEE/ANSI C95.1. The peak limits, intended to protect against peripheral nerve excitation by pulsed fields, are adapted from existing standards for patient exposure in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations.
