Abstract:

Over one thousand references on electric shock hazards and electrical safety are included from three computer retrievals, a sixty-hour Library of Congress search and contributions from over 50 organizations and individuals. The citations are divided into sections according to subject matter and arranged alphabetically by author within each section. Emphasis is upon published original experimental work concerning physiological thresholds to electric current at power transmission frequencies. Experimental work on biological impedances and on the pathophysiology of electric shock is also represented extensively. Clinical reports of pathological sequelae of electric shock are categorized, as are electrical safety standards in industry, agriculture and medicine. A few biological references obtained on peripherally-related subjects such as electroanesthesia, electroconvulsive therapy and legal execution are included. Finally, selected general reviews are presented. Author
