Taser stun gun linked to heart attacks - tech - 08 May 2012. Being hit with a Taser stun gun in the chest can lead to cardiac arrest and death, according to a new study.
The research by Douglas Zipes, a heart specialist at the Krannert Institute of Cardiology in Indianapolis, Indiana, was based on records he acquired as a plaintiff's expert witness in a number of lawsuits involving US police use of the controversial stun gun. Zipes examined eight cases between 2006 and 2009 in which "previously clinically healthy males" aged between 16 and 48 lost consciousness during or after tasings, when one or both of the current-carrying darts were lodged "near or over the heart". Seven of them died. In each case, Zipes analysed how long each shock lasted and cardiac responses measured by paramedics, when available (Circulation, DOI: 10.1161/circulationaha.112.097584 or bit.ly/stundeath).
He found that 50,000-volt stuns to the chest can induce irregular heartbeats that lead to cardiac arrest. Share on emailShare on gmailShare on stumbleupon More from the web. Beaurp's Channel.

Also good to see this organ on youtube and I have to say that I love the Contra-Trombone at the end, although of course the full effect wouldn't come through my headphones. That being said, the organ is a particularly unforgiving instrument to play. There was a mistake at 3:20, the numerous pauses in the fugue were odd and you have to wonder what the producer was thinking to show the video of the pedal mistake at 4:24.
