From the Back Cover:

TASER® Conducted Electrical Weapons are rapidly replacing the club for law-enforcement control of violent subjects within many countries around the globe. A TASER® CEW is a hand-held device that delivers a 400-volt pulse with a duration tuned to control the skeletal muscles without affecting the heart at a distance of up to 6.5 meters over tiny wires. If necessary, it begins with an arcing voltage of 50,000 V to penetrate thick clothing; the 50,000 V is never delivered to the body itself. This book will have significant utility due to the widespread usage of these devices and questions regarding its operation. This volume is written for cardiologists, emergency physicians, pathologists, law enforcement management, corrections personnel, and attorneys.

Mark W. Kroll, PhD is an Adj. Full Prof. of Biomedical Engineering at both the California Polytechnic University , and the University of Minnesota . He is also the co-editor of the books: Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Therapy, and Cardiac Bioelectric Therapy.

Jeffrey D. Ho, MD is a Senior Faculty Physician in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Hennepin County Medical Center (Minneapolis, Minnesota) and is a Deputy Sheriff with the Meeker County Sheriff's Office (Minnesota). He is an EMS Medical Director in Minnesota and an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Minnesota.

Review:

From the reviews:

"It is a must-read for anyone who has contact with CEWs [conducted electrical weapons]."

"From questions about electricity and the details of echocardiography to excited delirium and exercises in case law, this book covers it all."

"Drs.Kroll and Ho did an outstanding job of combining the basics of CEWs with the intricate details without making the book unusually complicated."

"...this book has facts and answers to many of the common questions surrounding CEWs as well as specialized information for the reader who wants to know the nuanced details."

(Dr. Paul Nystrom, TASERs: Fact or Fiction, Emergency Medicine News, October 2009)

"This book does an excellent job of pulling together a wide ranging variety of information about electronic control device technology, and its use. ... The information in this book is especially important for those in the law enforcement and professional communities ... . if you’re serious about understanding electronic control devices, non-lethal force, and all of the other issues related to this field, you need to have this book on your shelf, and you need to be familiar with its contents." (Steve Ashley, ILEETA Review, Vol. 5 (4), October-December, 2009)

"This 457-page book ... is a unique and rather fascinating compendium of science, clinical medicine, and electrophysiology. ... a primer on the law related to conducted electrical weapons (CEWs). ... This book is a gem; you will not find such an in-depth treatise in any other source. ... a cornucopia of information, data, personal vignettes, and streetwise common sense. ... most avid readers will be law enforcement personnel, toxicologists, emergency physicians, medical examiners, and of course, lawyers. ... I really like this book." (James R. Roberts, Academic Emergency Medicine, November, 2009)

“Published in 2009, ‘TASER Conducted Electrical Weapons: Physiology, Pathology, and the Law’ offers a comprehensive review of the TASER devices and an overview of in-custody events ... . The reader is able to travel with ease from the simple to the complex with well- written chapters that are complemented with tables, graphs, photos, and appendices. ... This book would be beneficial in preparation for trials, lectures, or completion of postmortem examinations of any in-custody death.” (Ruth E. Kohlmeier, American Journal of Forensic Medicine & Pathology, October, 2010)
