The EMF effect on the arterial blood flow is investigated employing a mathematical model. The propagation of an incident electromagnetic wave in the ultra-high frequency range (UHF), 200MHz -100GHz, is studied. This range covers the microwave to the millimeter wave ranges (MW-mmWave), currently adopted as the 5G mobile communications. Thermal and non-thermal possible effects, due to this UHF far field exposure are accounted for by the present results. These results, obtained from the proposed mathematical model, illustrate the distribution of both the induced power and the current densities versus frequency in arteries and blood within. The frequency dependence of dissipated and stored power densities is thus investigated. In addition to this, the ohmic and displacement current densities are computed. These are related to thermal and non-thermal effects as well. The present results are calculated for electric field strengths ranging from 1V/m to 1kV/m.
