This paper presents an experimental study of impulsive noise in urban hospitals and clinics. A receiver was designed to resolve impulsive noise bursts as short as 2 μs in duration in the 450-MHz band. Extensive measurements were taken at three hospitals and three clinics in three major urban areas across the United States and empirical models are provided for the amplitude, interarrival time, and duration distributions of observed impulsive noise events. This work may be used in modeling the noise found in indoor wireless communication channels
