Electrocution

Taming The SRU
Taming The SRU - September 22, 2020 - By Ijaz Hamza

"CONCLUSION 
The evaluation and management of patients who have suffered electrocution is challenging, as presentations range from asymptomatic to refractory cardiac arrest. Important historical features include type of current (AC or DC), voltage, and duration of exposure. Electrocuted patients are especially susceptible to cardiac arrhythmias, neurologic injury, rhabdomyolysis, and compartment syndrome. Even in the well-appearing patient, a thorough evaluation and high index of suspicion for injury is paramount, as electrocuted patients often have atypical injury patterns."
