An electrical burn may appear minor or not show on the skin at all, but the damage can extend deep into the tissues beneath your skin. If a strong electrical current passes through your body, internal damage, such as a heart rhythm disturbance or cardiac arrest, can occur. Sometimes the jolt associated with the electrical burn can cause you to be thrown or to fall, resulting in fractures or other associated injuries.
Seek immediate emergency medical assistance if the shocked person that has been burned, is in pain, is confused, or is experiencing changes in his or her breathing, heartbeat or consciousness.
