Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $250,198)

Preliminary research regarding the use of CEDs has provided brief insights into the potential concerns related with the use of these devices for less-lethal applications. These studies were conducted on healthy, resting, anesthetized swine while persons that are subjected to repeated exposures of a CED are most likely in an agitated or combative state causing a physiologically stressful state prior to CED exposure. The overall goal of this project is to review and analyze the effects of a CED on swine that have been subjected to a physiological stress that models an agitated state, as known as excited delirium, leading to enhanced safety and improvement of medical treatment for a person subjected to a CED.
