In our days attention has been focused on the analysis of the effects of electromagnetic fields both in human and veterinary medicine. The significance of analyses has been underlined by both therapeutic and noxions effects of magnetic field therapies to the living organism. Due to the fact that modern technical devices are widely used, the phenomena and data observed in connection with their use urge exact evaluation and analysis. The exact effect mechanism of electromagnetic field therapies is not quite clear. The oxygen uptake of cells is supposedly increased by the induced magnetic field . Electromagnetic field therapies in human and veterinary medicine are primarily used for treating soft tissue lesions , and bone and joint disorders . There are some new investigations trying to explain the effects of the treatments for positive and negative stress sensibility. In the first part of our study the therapeutic and noxious effects observed in human and veterinary biology are summarised without aiming at completeness. In the second part the effect of magnetic field therapy in horses is thoroughly examined. The local effects of electromagnetic field treatments as well as the biological effects of electromagnetic therapy using magnetic blanket on blood gas and biochemical parameters are tested. Paired t-test was applied in the course of biometric evaluations. The description of blood gas and acid-base parameters may it possible to apply magnetic field therapies for healing purpose as well as prevent stress-related diseases in race horses. The results of our investigation might lead to the conclusion that they are adaptable in human medicine as well.
