Electric Shock Self-Care at Home
Brief low-voltage shocks that do not result in any symptoms or burns of the skin do not usually require medical care (if you or the affected individual are unsure about symptoms, seek medical care). For any high-voltage shock, or for any shock resulting in burns, call 911 and seek medical care at a hospital's emergency department. A doctor should evaluate electric cord burns to the mouth of a child.
