Canned worms are many and various (57 Varieties?), and even better now that so many come with a ring-pull!
After all, what's the point of all our endless hand-wringing over this and that esoteric leakage current as regards to electro-medical equipment (and the environment it's used in), when Little Johnny (oh, I guess I mean Jason

I guess I should also mention the guy in CCU who just has
to carry on "working" (with his laptop, that is) ... oblivious to the fact that that is how he came to be in there in the first place!
Yes, every biomed should carry a Volt Stick in their shirt pocket (just as long as it's one of the original, yellow ones, that is).
