About this book

Atlas of Conducted Electrical Weapon Wounds and Forensic Analysis provides a comprehensive publication on the subject of Conducted Electrical Weapon (CEW) wounds and signature markings created by this class of weapon. This volume will serve as a very useful resource for all professions tasked with assisting persons that have allegedly been subjected to a CEW exposure. The volume provides an introduction to basic CEW technology and the types of CEWs currently available. It also serves as a comprehensive pictorial atlas of signature markings that CEW exposures make in the immediate and more remote post-exposure periods. Also, it discusses the ability of forensic specialty examinations of the CEW itself to aid in the determination of whether the alleged CEW exposure is consistent with the objective evidence and the subjective statements. Finally, this text addresses the important and growing area of factitious CEW markings that will be useful for consideration by investigators and litigators. Atlas of Conducted Electrical Weapon Wounds and Forensic Analysis provides an objective atlas of evidence for reference that will benefit those professionals who often must make diagnostic, treatment or legal judgments on these cases including Emergency and Primary-Care Physicians, Medical Examiners, Forensic Pathologists, Coroners, Law Enforcement Investigators, and Attorneys.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This current textbook takes CEWs research to the next logical level. It deals more specifically with the medical and legal aspects of actual CEW use. … this is a great resource and it provides information that is absolutely essential to clinicians as they attempt to discern the truth. … In the same way this textbook should be considered a historic contribution to the field of CEW wound assessment. Students will study its pages and acquire the scientific skills necessary to discern the truth.” (Glenn A. Bollard, Forensic Medicine Section Newsletter, March, 2013)

“Ho, Dawes, and Kroll are editors of an atlas that … discuss various aspects relating to the usage of conducted electrical weapons (CEWs). … The atlas presents excellent photos of CEW related injuries, both typical and atypical. … This atlas provides worthwhile information forming part of one’s education in understanding the workings of CEWs and their expected injury patterns.” (Paul J. Bedford, Forensic Science, Medicine and Pathology, Vol. 9, 2013)

“It is intended for those with any interest in or exposure to the world of conducted electrical weapons, which would include law enforcement personnel, physicians, and those in public safety agencies and the judicial system. … this book is most useful for the nonphysician audience. … This is a fair quality book that presents in-depth knowledge and insights into the field of conducted electrical weapons. It is useful for those involved in medicolegal proceedings, including those in law enforcement and certain medicine subspecialties.” (Natalie Webster, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2012)
