A new cause of seizures


Quote :
A jolt from a stun gun can cause a seizure if the gun is aimed at the head, warns a new report in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

The case report describes an incident in which an unnamed Ontario police officer was chasing a suspected robber. The officer's partner fired his Taser and accidentally hit the officer.

The VNS can increase seizures in some people too. It shouldn't be surprising that an electrical charge might trigger a seizure.

I don't think it's surprising but I'm thrilled that it was acknowledged in a medical associations journal.
