Intracardiac Electrocardiographic Assessment of Precordial TASER Shocks in Human Subjects: A Pilot Study
A TASER Conducted Electrical Weapon With Cardiac Biomonitoring Capability: Proof of Concept and Initial Human Trial
Thousands of law enforcement agencies throughout the United States have adopted conducted energy devices (CEDs) as a safe method to subdue individuals, but are these devices really safe? What policies should agencies adopt to ensure the proper use of this technology? This NIJ Conference Panel discusses the physiological effects of electrical current in the human body caused by CEDs, as well as how this technology can reduce injuries to officers and suspects when appropriate policies and training are followed.
