Conducted electrical devices

You're following the police into an incident outside a fish and chip shop. Despite the efforts of the police, your patient has just been incapacitated with a Taser conducted electrical device. The police officer would like you to remove the barbs (she promises she won't shock you). Can you manage?

This issue explores conducted electrical devices, one of a range of 'less-lethal weapons' in the police armoury. You'll discover how they work, when they are used, some possible complications and how to manage the post-Taser patient.
