Because there is such a great variance from person to person, keep in mind that the current ranges listed here are only guidelines and approximations. 1 are identified by the term macroshock. Macroshock is a physiologic response resulting from electrical current in contact with the skin of the body. Macroshock can occur when a person makes an electrical connection with two parts of the body (arms, for example) or a person is connected to “earth ground” (a lower potential area) and makes an electrical connection with one point of an energized source.
