    I was wondering how it could be,I have seen it before on House M.D.,the doctors
    had been talking about this such as ''if you remove the medicine,the patient will be gonna die''(I don't know which episode)

    Is that possible,I just heard that brain has a pain place and then if it take so much pain impulse,people can be die because of the our system can't take this anymore.

    Could you give me certain and comprehensive information about this subject?
    And sorry about my English,I can't write so good.

    Thanks.

    You can black out, go into shock... that can tip a body over the edge.

    Tasers primarily cause pain, and we sometimes kill people with tasers. In these cases the person was already both extremely excited and exhausted.

    I brought a 4-month-old baby into hospital once (he'd been vomiting all day) and an unfortunately bad draw of staff proceeded to effectively torture him. He screamed and flailed throughout the long time we were there, so couldn't possibly settle down to mama's breast and just kept losing energy. I had to sign a waiver to remove the child from that spiraling nightmare. Condition improved in the taxi home.

    Instances in which tasers have caused death are usually linked to previous cardiac issues or drug use.

    Sure, pain can make one pass out but it doesn't cause shock. It cannot in itself kill.

    Agony and even terror are pretty deeply entwined with the endocrine system. And we know endocrine disruption/collapse can cause shock (I mean critical drop in blood pressure). I wouldn't set apart pain as all in the mind (not body) because in my view we're all in the body.

    Canadian police decided yesterday (from review of their sorry evidence) that tasers may cause death of stressed individuals, and have revised the rules of use. In the past tasers were deployed for "pain compliance" and apprehensions often resolved with police repeatedly zapping a body until it stopped struggling i.e. convulsing. Many healthy people died this way. The way a taser works, it's impossible to electrically stimulate a heart attack.

    Actually some research has shown that it may cause a dangerous amount of electrical shock, some studies have found that the tasers with time may start delivering shocks at a higher voltage than what the manufacturer intended.
