[…] this data collection platform develops, it may be possible to expand from the narrow focus on lethal force into very specific types of force (e.g., the use of conducted energy devices, such as the taser, or the use of impact weapons, such as a baton), and later into other types of physical force, while encouraging agency conformity to reporting practices. a similar expansion of scope […]

[…] legal intervention deaths include a small subset in which force was applied without clear lethal intent (e.g., during restraint or when applying force with a typically nondeadly weapon such as a taser [taser international, scottsdale, arizona]) or in which the death occurred while the person was fleeing capture. this category excludes legal executions. corresponding icd-10 codes included […]

[…] young adult male experienced penetrating globe injury due to a thomas a. swift electric rifle (taser). despite successful repair of the globe, the damage was profound. this case report explores the complex ways in which mechanical and electrical forces from a taser may impact the structural […]

[…] inflated type i errors, but discarding those samples with insufficient read depth can result in a loss of power (or, in this case, the loss of all controls). we therefore used the software package taser, which effectively re-calls variants in both cases and controls, allowing for systematic differences in read depth (and other factors), at the same time as constructing a test statistic., […]

[…] mean that clinical goals are probably to be preferred over mri goals at least in the short term. whether ultrasound can step into the gap remains an open question []. both the arctic [] and the taser [] studies have recently investigated whether ultrasound imaging can improve patient outcomes if used by clinicians to inform decision-making. both studies concluded that an ultrasound-driven […]
