...I am concerned about the mentality or attitude that officers have about these weapons. If they are trained that conducted energy weapons are just another non-lethal weapon, they will fail to appreciate the serious medical risks inherent in their use. However, if officers are trained that these weapons are capable of causing death or other specified medical conditions, then they will be more likely to treat any negative post-discharge outcome as a medical emergency and take appropriate resuscitative measures, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, automatic external defibrillator, or call for paramedic assistance.
