    Electrical Injury and a Residential Electrician Contractor

    A residential electrician contractor will help to keep you safe.  Electrical injuries are some of the most dangerous ones around.

    As we covered in our last article, electrical safety is of paramount importance.  According to Medscape:

    “Electrical injuries have become a more common form of trauma with a unique pathophysiology and with high morbidity and mortality. They encompass several types, as follows: lightning injury,[1] high-voltage injury, and low-voltage injury.[2, 3, 4] Clinical manifestations range from transient unpleasant sensations without apparent injury to massive tissue damage.[5] Some electrocutions are instantly fatal. Familiarity with the mechanisms of injury and the principles of therapy improves patient care.[6]

    Four classes of electrical injuries are as follows[7] :

    True electrical injuries – The person becomes part of the electrical circuit and has an entrance and exit site
    Flash injuries – Superficial burns caused by arcs that burn the skin; no electrical energy travels through the skin
    Flame injuries – Caused by ignition of the persons clothing by arc; electricity may or may not travel through the person’s body
    Lightning injuries – A unique type of injury that occurs at extremely high voltages for the shortest duration; the majority of electrical flow occurs over the body.” [READ SOURCE]

    However, it isn’t just electrical injury that may be an issue,  even a simple mistake such as mixing two different metals in your wiring can cause a chemical reaction and ultimately a fire.  And the scary thing is that sometimes, this can take a while to manifest.  So you could conceivably have a ticking time bomb in the wiring of your home.  However, there are some other reasons to get an electrician
