Following a recent study suggesting the Apple iPod could adversely affect the performance of pacemakers, a new report in the New England Journal of Medicine has warned that portable digital music players can be extremely dangerous if carried in a storm.
"Most people hit by lightning get away with minor burns," outlined the report’s lead author, Dr. Eric J. Heffernan of Vancouver General Hospital, before explaining that human skin is highly resistant and prevents electricity from entering the body. "It’s called the flashover effect," he added in a Xinhua article, "although it can stop your heart and kill you."
The report, which looks at instances of individuals struck by lightning while using electronic devices, suggests that a digital music player, mobile phone, or another piece of portable electronic equipment can drastically alter the physical effects of a flashover.
