Injuries caused by electric currents. The concept excludes electric burns (BURNS, ELECTRIC), but includes accidental electrocution and electric shock.
In about 250 species of electric fishes, modified muscle fibers forming disklike multinucleate plates arranged in stacks like batteries in series and embedded in a gelatinous matrix. A large torpedo ray may have half a million plates. Muscles in different parts of the body may be modified, i.e., the trunk and tail in the electric eel, the hyobranchial apparatus in the electric ray, and extrinsic eye muscles in the stargazers. Powerful electric organs emit pulses in brief bursts several times a second. They serve to stun prey and ward off predators. A large torpedo ray can produce of shock of more than 200 volts, capable of stunning a human. (Storer et al., General Zoology, 6th ed, p672)

Inappropriate shocks delivered by implantable cardiac defibrillators during oversensing of activity of diaphagmatic muscle. (1/128)

Two cases are reported (both men, one 72 and one 54 years old) of inappropriate shocks delivered by an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) device, which oversensed the myopotentials induced by deep breathing and Valsalva manoeuvre. No damage to leads was associated with the oversensing of myopotentials. The mechanism of the inappropriate shocks was determined using real time electrograms. Modification of the duration of ventricular detection and decrease in sensitivity made it possible to avoid the oversensing of myopotentials and to deliver ICD treatment.  (+info)

Transient quadriparesis after electric shock. (2/128)

Radiofrequency electrocution (196 MHz). (3/128)

Radiofrequency (RF) electrocutions are uncommon. A case of electrocution at 196 MHz is presented partly because there are no previous reports with frequencies as high as this, and partly to assist in safety standard setting. A 53-year-old technician received two brief exposures to both hands of 2A current at 196 MHz. He did not experience shock or burn. Progressively over the next days and months he developed joint pains in the hands, wrists and elbows, altered temperature and touch sensation and parasthesiae. Extensive investigation found no frank neurological abnormality, but there were changes in temperature perception in the palms and a difference in temperature between hands. His symptoms were partly alleviated with ultra-sound therapy, phenoxybenzamine and glyceryl trinitrate patches locally applied, but after several months he continues to have some symptoms. The biophysics and clinical aspects are discussed. It is postulated that there was mainly surface flow of current and the micro-vasculature was effected. Differences to 50 Hz electrocution are noted. Electrocution at 196 MHz, even in the absence of burns may cause long-term morbidity to which physicians should be alerted. Safety standards should consider protection from electrocution at these frequencies.  (+info)

Alpha(2)-antiplasmin gene deficiency in mice does not affect neointima formation after vascular injury. (4/128)

The hypothesis that alpha(2)-antiplasmin (alpha(2)-AP), the main physiological plasmin inhibitor, plays a role in neointima formation was tested with use of a vascular injury model in wild-type (alpha(2)-AP(+/+)) and alpha(2)-AP-deficient (alpha(2)-AP(-/-)) mice. The neointimal and medial areas were similar 1 to 3 weeks after electric injury of the femoral artery in alpha(2)-AP(+/+) and alpha(2)-AP(-/-) mice, resulting in comparable intima/media ratios (eg, 0.43+/-0.12 and 0.42+/-0.11 2 weeks after injury). Nuclear cell counts in cross-sectional areas of the intima of the injured region were also comparable in arteries from alpha(2)-AP(+/+) and alpha(2)-AP(-/-) mice (78+/-19 and 69+/-8). Fibrin deposition was not significantly different in arteries of both genotypes 1 day after injury, and no mural thrombosis was detected 1 week after injury. Fibrinolytic activity in femoral arterial sections, as monitored by fibrin zymography, was higher in alpha(2)-AP(-/-) mice 1 week after injury (P<0.001) but was comparable in both genotypes 2 and 3 weeks after injury. Staining for elastin did not reveal significant degradation of the internal elastica lamina in either genotype. Immunocytochemical analysis revealed a comparable distribution pattern of alpha-actin-positive smooth muscle cells in both genotypes. These findings indicate that the endogenous fibrinolytic system of alpha(2)-AP(+/+) mice is capable of preventing fibrin deposition after vascular injury and suggest that alpha(2)-AP does not play a major role in smooth muscle cell migration and neointima formation in vivo.  (+info)

Neuropsychiatric profile of a case of post traumatic stress disorder following an electric shock. (5/128)

Exposure to extraordinary stressors or life-threatening events has been shown to result in negative cognitive, behavioural and emotional outcomes including the cluster of symptoms constituting Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This disorder has most often been studied in military veterans and victims of abuse who also show high rates of comorbid conditions. We report a case of PTSD following an electrical injury in a patient with no past psychiatric history. Implications for a full range of examinations including comprehensive neuropsychiatric testing are discussed. Results suggest that such approach addresses the complexity of a differential diagnosis between organic and psychiatric dysfunctions.  (+info)

Leakage of energy to the body surface during defibrillation shock by an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) system--experimental evaluation during defibrillation shocks through the right ventricular lead and the subcutaneous active-can in canines. (6/128)

The leakage of electrical current to the body surface during defibrillation shock delivery by an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) device (the Medtronic Jewel Plus PCD system) was evaluated in 5 dogs. The defibrillation shocks were delivered between the active-can implanted in the left subclavicular region and the endocardial lead placed in the right ventricle at the energy levels of 1, 2, 8, 12, 24 and 34 J. During each delivery, the electrical current leakage from the body surface was measured by electrodes connected to a circuit at 4 recording positions: (A) parallel-subcutaneous (the electrodes were fixed in the subcutaneous tissue of the left shoulder and the right lower chest, and the direction of the electrode vector was parallel to the direction of the defibrillation energy flow); (B) cross-subcutaneous (the electrodes were fixed in the subcutaneous tissue of the right shoulder and the left lower chest, and the vector of the electrodes was roughly perpendicular to the direction of the energy flow); (C) parallel-surface (the electrodes were fixed with ECG paste on the shaved skin surface at the left shoulder and the right lower chest); and (D) surface grounded (the electrodes were fixed on the shaved skin surface at the left shoulder and the left foot, which was grounded). The circuit resistance was set at a variable level (100-5,000 ohms) in accordance with the resistance measured through each canine body. Leakage energies were measured in 750 defibrillation shocks with each circuit resistance in 5 dogs. The leakage energy increased in accordance with the increase of the delivered energy and the decrease of the circuit resistance in all 4 recording positions. When the circuit resistance was set at 1,000 ohms, the leakage energy during shock delivery at 34 J was 32+/-17 mJ at position A, 5+/-9 mJ at B, 10+/-9 mJ at C, and 4+/-3 mJ at D (p=0.042). The peak current was highest at position A and was 87+/-22 mA with a circuit resistance of 1,000 ohms. The power of the leakage energy depended on the delivered energy and the impedance between the electrodes. The angle between the alignment of the recording electrodes and the direction of the energy flow was another important factor in determining the leakage energy. Although the peak current of the leakage energy reached the level of macro shock, the highest leakage energy from the body surface was considerably less because of the short duration of the shock delivery.  (+info)

Inappropriate discharges from an intravenous implantable cardioverter defibrillator due to T-wave oversensing. (7/128)

This report describes the clinical management of 2 patients with ventricular fibrillation (VF) who received inappropriate shocks from an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) due to T-wave oversensing. Cardiac sarcoidosis was confirmed as the underlying heart disease in 1 patient and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy in the other. Within 2 months after ICD implantation, both patients received several inappropriate shocks during sinus rhythm. Stored electrograms showed decreased R-wave amplitudes and increased T-wave amplitudes. The ICD sensed both R- and T-waves as ventricular activation, which met the rate criteria for VF treatment. Reprogramming the sensing threshold in association with administration of a drug to slow the heart rate decreased the incidence of the inappropriate shocks in both patients, but these palliative measures did not completely suppress the inappropriate shocks. To avoid T-wave oversensing, the repositioning or adding of a sensing lead is required. The potential risk of T-wave oversensing in ICD patients who have small R-wave amplitudes should be recognized.  (+info)

Correlation between serum IL-6 levels and death: usefulness in diagnosis of "traumatic shock"? (8/128)

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) has been considered as an important mediator of inflammation. Clinically it is a well-known marker of the severity of injury following major trauma. In this study, the levels of IL-6 in body serum were applied to a traumatic death index. Of ninety victims 55 were men and 35 women, with a mean age of 53.4+/- 19 (S.D.) years. The cases were classified as traumatic deaths (38 cases), non-traumatic deaths other than natural causes of deaths (36 cases), and deaths due to natural causes (16 cases). All samples were collected within 2 days after death. The mean values of IL-6 levels of the traumatic, non-traumatic and disease groups were 8608.97, 2205.65, and 3266.64 pg/ml, respectively. Some cases in non-traumatic and disease cases were beyond 10 000 pg/ml, however, the mean value of the traumatic group was statistically higher than that of the other two groups. Even though several cases had high levels of IL-6 in spite of instantaneous death, the results showed that IL-6 levels are helpful in the diagnosis of traumatic shock.  (+info)

Patients with high-voltage electrical injuries had very high rates of infection, morbidity, and limb amputation. The results of early and late flap coverage in these patients were prospectively compared. The patients were divided into two groups, early flap group (≤3 weeks) and late flap group (|3 weeks), according to the length of time from injury to wound coverage with flap. Age, sex, demographic data, time taken for flap coverage, time taken for pedicle division, time taken to discharge, wound infection, range of motion in joints, amputation, mortality, and outcome were gathered in a special questionnaire. This study included 55 patients, 31 within the early flap group and 24 within the late flap group. Of the 55 patients, 94.6% were male; mean (SD) of age was 29.04 (10.11) and of TBSA was 13.8 (10.07). Length of stay was significantly longer in the late flap group. The rates of infection and amputation were lower in the early flap group. There was no correlation between the type and the number of

Electrical injuries most often occur in industrial accidents and, occasionally, with children who curiously play with electrical outlets or cords (chew on electrical cord). About 93% of electrical injury victims are males. The groups highest at risk are electrical and construction workers most commonly injured by generated electricity. Golfers who stay outdoors in summer during lightning storms, comprise a significantly large group susceptible to lightning strikes.There are two types of electric currents: DIRECT (DC) and ALTERNATING (AC). Injuries which result from direct current occur mainly in industrial environments. The majority of homes are supplied with alternating current. The flow of electricity is from the point of contact to the ground. The injury is dependent on the distance and the resistance of the tissue involved. Alternating current is usually much more disruptive to tissue. Direct current produces a smaller entrance wound with a much larger exit.. The greatest threat to life from ...
Increased smartphone use among minors makes our population more prone to electrical injury. Despite regulations on electrical home safety standards, smartphones and chargers still pose a risk for severe injury among users. We present a case of a patient with low-voltage electrical burns due to smartphone use in a bathtub. The 13-year-old Caucasian patient was using a smartphone plugged into the electrical grid while taking a bath. We report the burns and their treatment. We discuss the likely burn mechanism. Burn wounds after electrical injury due to smartphone use are rare. The presented case shows the danger of smartphone use in bathtubs.
Originally from south Florida, John Creagh is no stranger to random electrical storms and, after a stint in the ED at the University of Miami School of Medicine, the injuries they incur. So when asked to present at Grand Rounds at the Johns Hopkins Childrens Center in Baltimore, where he is a pediatric resident, it was only natural for him to choose the acute care and management of electrical injuries as his topic.. Electrical injuries dont happen that frequently up here so I thought it would be good to look at the literature and figure out what pediatricians need to look for and how they should treat patients, says Creagh.. What did he learn?. ...
Occupational electrocution deaths occurred almost entirely among males. The highest rates were found among those aged 20-34 and among white and American Indian workers, followed by black workers. The proportions of occupational electrocution deaths were highest in the summer months, in the South, and in establishments employing 10 or fewer workers. The highest rates by industry were in construction, mining, and agriculture, forestry, and fishing. The highest occupation specific rates were among trades associated with these industries.. The present study found nearly 99% of electrocution deaths to have occurred among males, similar to the findings of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).3 This is likely in part due to the prevalence of males in trades with greater exposure to electrical sources. This study showed the highest rates of death among those aged 20-34; whereas, the highest occupational injury death rates overall in the United States occurred among those ...
Patients with electric shock and electrical injuries can suffer trauma, external burns, and occult injuries to deep tissues, affecting all body systems.
Electrical injury is a physiological reaction caused by electric current passing through the (human) body. Electric shock occurs upon contact of a (human) body part with any source of electricity that causes a sufficient magnitude of current to pass through the victims flesh, viscera or hair. Physical contact with energized wiring or devices is the most common cause of an electric shock. In cases of exposure to high voltages, such as on a power transmission tower, physical contact with energized wiring or objects may not be necessary to cause electric shock, as the voltage may be sufficient to jump the air gap between the electrical device and the victim. The injury related to electric shock depends on the magnitude of the current. Very small currents may be imperceptible or produce a light tingling sensation. A shock caused by low current that would normally be harmless could startle an individual and cause injury due to suddenly jerking away from the source of electricity, resulting in one ...
Electrical injuries have become a more common form of trauma with a unique pathophysiology and with high morbidity and mortality. They encompass several types, as follows: lightning injury, high-voltage injury, and low-voltage injury.

Defective wiring at the workplace is the most common cause of burns and electrocution. Some classes of workers such as utility workers, electricians, and construction workers are at the highest risk of electrocution. If an employer fails to implement safety programs and follow OSHA regulations, construction managers, property owners, and contractors may be held liable for negligence.. If a work-related electrical injury or electrocution is caused by a defective product such as a tool or electrical appliance, then a third-party personal injury claim may be filed in addition to a workers compensation claim. There are several hazards that increase the chances of electrocutions at the workplace. These include:. ...

The correct answer is C. Lorraine Lau and Anton Helman covered Electrical Injuries on EM cases this week.. Fortunately, cardiac complications from electrical injury are relatively uncommon with an overall incidence of 4-17%. Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia. Other ECG findings are bundle branch blocks, AV-blocks, QT prolongation, ST-changes, ventricular fibrillation and asystole. The fatal arrhythmias normally appear directly after the electrical trauma, with a VF more common after a trauma with alternating current and an asystole more common after injury with direct current. Cardiac monitoring is required in the first few hours for all high voltage (,1000V) injured patients, and for low voltage injured patients with symptoms (chest pain or syncope). Troponines are only indicated in patients with clinical presentation of cardiac ischemia and should not be obtained routinely.. ...
In Washington State, investigators recently reviewed death certificates of all persons killed by electrocution during 1970-1979 and of all farmers killed by electrocution during 1950-1979. Analysis showed that farmers are significantly more likely than non-farmers to die of accidental electrocution (1). An electrocution was considered irrigation-pipe-associated (IPA) when the death certificate or a newspaper article provided sufficient information to conclude that the death was irrigation pipe associated or when the death certificate suggested IPA electrocution. A death was considered occupationally related when the death certificate specified the injury occurred at work. During Washingtons agricultural growing season, 30- and 40-foot lengths of 3-inch aluminum pipe are used to irrigate fields. Electrocutions occur when these pipes touch electrical lines at the periphery of the fields while being hand carried by workers. In accordance with the recommendation of the National Electrical Safety ...

Although we all have slightly different stories as to how these symptoms just showed up one day, my acupuncturist now had a really good analogy that made a lot of sense to me. He said our bodies are constantly adapting to the stress, toxins, and abuse we subject them to day in and day out. The often adapt to allow us to keep on feeling good, but not all adaptations are for our overall health benefit. He compared the bodys tollerance threshold for stress, toxins, and abuse as an empty glass. As we subject it to more and more and it goes on adapting and putting up with everything the glass begins to fill up. One day we reach the point where the water begins to overflow because the tollerance threshold has been reached. We can no longer adapt to feel fine any longer and something has to give. Physical symptoms begin to manifest. We are suddenly aware there is a problem, but the truth is it has been in the works for years. When he works on me, he is working to address the many adaptations that were ...

Rhabdomyolysis. Hopefully youre somewhat familiar with this medical condition. Dr. Michael Ray of CrossFit Flagstaff, AZ states Rhabdomyolysis is a medical condition that may arise when muscle tissue breaks down and muscle cells are released into the bloodstream. The destruction of these cells cause a release of breakdown products, one of which is myoglobin - a protein molecule that is harmful to the kidneys and can cause acute renal failure and even death.. There are two key points that wed like for you to understand: what causes rhabdo and what the symptoms of rhabdo are. First, if you understand the causes of this condition, you can avoid having it. Rhabdo is physically caused by crushing injuries, obstruction of blood supply to muscles, electrical injuries, and yes… exercise. Typically, cases of rhabdo that are related to exercise are attributed to infrequent exposure to high intensity output coupled with poor hydration. In other words, an athlete coming from a globo-gym with a ...
Construction has stopped on the new apartment building at 2201 N. Pershing Drive in Lyon Park, following the electrocution death of a worker.. According to police, two individuals were doing work on an electrical panel inside a closet. One of the workers walked away to get more supplies, and then heard a strange noise. Upon returning, he found the victim being electrocuted.

There is a certain level to which you should keep yourself safe. However, some of us want to go a little overboard. Thats why the Knuckle Blaster Stun Gun has been invented. It will take self-defense to a whole new level.. Its shaped like brass knuckles, but is coated in a soft, rubbery material so you dont get shocked when trying to fend off an attacker. In between the middle and ring finger on the outside of this device is a stun gun that sends out 950,00 volts of electricity. If you add this on top of a good right hook, no one in their right mind would try and attack you, especially if you gave them a good warning buzz from afar. Keep in mind though, that to bring the person who is trying to harm you to their knees, youre going to have to be within arms reach. If youre interested in serious self-defense, they will cost you about $48.. ...
Not only is the Double Trouble Stun Gun a sight to behold, it also is very powerful. Just discharge this unit up in the air and no one will want to be near you! Even the sound of it, lets people know it will hurt! The 1.2 million volt weapon has 2 stunning areas, twice the defense on an attacker. The appearance is not just for looks, but for ergonomic purposes. This device is very comfortable in your hand and gives you an extension that feels natural. The entire weapon has a soft rubber surface, that helps you grip it even more and prevents it from sliding off your fingers. It also has an activation or safety switch. Touching an attacker with this stun gun for 1 to 4 seconds can cause the person to fall down and have mental confusion, it will prevent a person from continuing an attack. If you touch them for a full 5 seconds or more, it will disorient them, make them lose their balance and fall. The shock will leave them weak and dazed for minutes after the attempted attack ...

He was the recipient of the Don Bolles Award for his report entitled Taser tied to independent study that backs stun gun. As part of an extraordinarily thorough investigation of Taser International, Anglen uncovered smoking gun documents that showed the manufacturer was heavily involved in the key study that purported the devices are safe. Anglen also uncovered conflicts of interest and documented wide-spread problems with Taser safety - a matter of national and international public interest.. In 2006, Mr. Anglen was a runner up for the Arizona Press Clubs Virg Hill Journalist of the Year award. Peter Bhatia of The Oregonian wrote Robert Anglen is ...
I need to know whether there are any papers available on the neurological / trauma effects on human memory of a discharge by one of these hand-held stun guns. The model in question is one which is applied directly to the victim, rather than one which fires darts from a distance. The voltage of this device is unknown, Im afraid. I would appreciate assistance, as well as any references to papers. If you supply references, I can obtain the papers via my local academic library. I am very much afraid that I need this information for legal reasons, as a close friend, who shall remain anonymous, is busy recovering from an ordeal which sounds very much like an assault by a contact stun gun. If you could get me some information, both she and I would be very grateful. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ jatlhbe yajwI. yajbe jatlhwI. He who knows, does not speak.

OSHA has cited a contractor for electrocution and fall hazards at a Westchester County, New York worksite. The information below, about significant construction job hazards, is from an OSHA news release dated November 9, 2009.. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has proposed over $50,000 in fines against Metro Steel Fabricators Inc., a Brooklyn steel erection contractor, for alleged willful and serious violations of safety standards at a Tuckahoe, N.Y., jobsite.. OSHAs inspection found that workers at the 30 Elm St. worksite were exposed to electrocution hazards while working within 10 feet of energized high-voltage power and service lines, while workers who were connecting steel beams without fall protection were exposed to falls of three stories.. Falls and electrocutions are among the leading causes of death in construction work, said Diana Cortez, OSHAs area director in Tarrytown, N.Y. Electricity can kill or injure instantly, while a momentary slip, trip or loss ...

Acupuncture is a specialised sensory stimulation that is analysed through sensory neural pathways. Therefore to understand its action we have to analyse the anatomy, physiology and pharmacology of the nervous system, aided with a knowledge of neuroendocrinology and the chemoarchitecture of the brain. Various neural theories have been developed to explain the mechanisms of acupuncture. It is now evident that acupuncture reacts at local, regional (spinal cord) and general (brain) levels. Therefore, inserting one or more needles at particular points (or areas) of the body activates neural pathways on three different levels, provoking local, regional, and general reactions.. The local reaction is a multifactorial phenomenon. The electric injury potential due to the needle, the presence and synthesis of opioid peptides at the site of injury, and substance P, histamine like substances, bradikinin, serotonin and proteolitic enzyme release around the needle, all occur during needling.. The regional ...

An electrical burn is a burn that results from electricity passing through the body causing rapid injury. Approximately 1,000 deaths per year due to electrical injuries are reported in the United States, with a mortality rate of 3-5%. Electrical burns differ from thermal or chemical burns in that they cause much more subdermal damage. They can exclusively cause surface damage, but more often tissues deeper underneath the skin have been severely damaged. As a result, electrical burns are difficult to accurately diagnose, and many people underestimate the severity of their burn. In extreme cases, electricity can cause shock to the brain, strain to the heart, and injury to other organs. For a burn to be classified as electrical, electricity must be the direct cause. For example, burning a finger on a hot electric steam iron would be thermal, not electrical. Electricity passing through resistance creates heat, so there is no current entering the body in this type of burn. Likewise, a fire that is ...
Inappropriate ICD Shocks and Complications in HCM IntroductionThe expanded use of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) to prevent sudden cardiac death (SCD) in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) based on risk stratification in individuals without known previous ventricular arrhythmia is justified by an acceptable risk of device-related adverse events. Such complications, leading to surgical procedures or inappropriate electrical shocks, may impact mortality, morbidity, quality of life, and cost-effectiveness. Methods and ResultsFrom the Swedish ICD Registry, implants due to HCM since 1995 until November 2012 in patients aged 18 years were identified and medical records reviewed. Inappropriate ICD shock occurred in 14.3% (46 of 321 patients; mean follow-up 5.4 years) with a recurrent episode in 28.2% of them. In multivariable analysis, hazard ratio (HR) for atrial fibrillation was 3.5 (95% confidence interval 1.8-6.8; P , 0.001) but showed no significant association to male sex (HR = ...
Apart from workers compensation, workers that suffer injuries caused by electrocution, might also be eligible for other types of compensation. These compensations can include:. Personal injury in case the injury is caused by a third person. In cases like this, you can file for a personal injury claim.. Product liability if you were injured because the equipment and machinery malfunctioned. Then you might be entitled to a compensation from the machinery/equipment manufacturer. These claims however, require you to prove that the equipment/machinery was defective.. Premises liability if you suffered an electrocution injury because the property or business owner didnt take the necessary steps in order to protect the workers for hazard.. Wrongful death claims are only possible if the electrocution resulted in the death of a worker. Then the workers loved ones are entitled to recover damages by filing a wrongful death claim.. ...

A method for external treatment of dysrhythmias including fibrillation of a patients heart utilizes an externally located control box which generates electrical waveforms including shocks of variable energy content sufficient for terminating the dysrhythmias. A lead having transvenous defibrillation electrodes is inserted through a portion of the patients venous system to position the electrodes to produce an electric field vector through the patients heart when an electrical shock of sufficient energy content is applied across the electrodes. The control box is electrically connected to the lead to deliver electrical shocks from the control box to the electrodes, and to deliver a representation of the patients ECG waveform to the control box. A display screen on the control box aids in synchronously triggering the electrical shocks in response to detection of the QRS complex of the ECG waveform. The energy content of each electrical shock is adjusted from the control box to a value within a range
