  • It is well known that electrical injury can cause damage to the central nervous system, affecting both the brain and spinal cord. Both acute and delayed neurological syndromes have been reported1X2 in victims of electrical injury involving a variety of symptoms, including loss of consciousness, seizures, aphasia, visual disturbances, headaches, tinnitus, paresis, and memory di~turbance.~ Neurologic sequelae can occur whether or not the head is a point of direct contact with the electrical… CONTINUE READING
