Wake Forest Professor Finds No Major Link Between Tasers and Health Problems

October 08, 2009  | 

A Wake Forest University professor researching the medical effects of the use of Tasers has found no major link between the less-lethal weapon and health problems, according the the company.

Dr. William Bozeman, associate professor of emergency medicine at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, has studied the use of tasers during the last few years. He said he found no major link between health problems and tasers.

In the past two weeks, two high schools students attending Triad christian schools in Greensboro, N.C., were tased by school resource officers.

Bozeman said the pain of being tasered lasts about five seconds, compared with about 20 minutes from pepper spray. He said a taser hits a person with one-third of a joule of electricity, compared with the 50 to 100 joule of electricity doctors use when trying to affect a person's heartbeat in an emergency room, according to DigTriad.com.
