Injuries caused by electrical exposure range from inconsequential to fatal, and the potential for harm is often underestimated.

Case studies are included, and evaluation, management, and disposition considerations are discussed. Special attention is also given to the management of pediatric and pregnant populations.

This article, by Barry Knapp, MD, FACEP, RDMS, and Adam Belsches, MD, is published in Emergency Medicine magazine (read the paper).
