"The risk of an ECD causing cardiac arrest in humans from VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION is sufficiently remote that making accurate estimates is very difficult."
"...making accurate estimates is very difficult."
Stupid red-herring. We don't need an "accurate estimate". An approximate estimate would allow decisions to be made. Real world data suggests that, once the taser darts land on chest, then the percentage risk that the subject will end up dead is roughly at the low end of single digits.
My long-standing ball-park estimate (going back to at least March 2009 [LINK]) of "...in the range of about 1 %..." matches the one-in-56 rate observed by Dr. Swerdlow [LINK].
Sufficiently remote ...my ass.
