Summary

The variety and high number of published research articles on conducted electrical weapons (CEW) provides a detailed, yet in some parts inconclusive overview of medical aspects of CEW. Due to different research approaches and the use of dissimilar test subjects, an assessment of possible health risks of CEW is limited. The present work provides a brief on CEW safety based on currently available animal, computer and human research data. Using the medical database PubMed, articles published on this topic are critically evaluated and compared with each other. Special focuses are the differences and similarities of human and animal research as well as computer simulation programs. The authors explain why some studies are more reliable than others and give their expert opinion on the safety of CEW. The body of data that have been reviewed provides reasonable support for the safety of CEW.
