Jesus christ people, THATS NOT HOW DEFIBRILLATORS WORK
@unknownjanitor, YES THANK YOU! Nurse here, asystole is not a shockable rhythm, only Vtach and Vfib!
@unknownjanitor, but it is how electricity works. Electricity will go the path of least resistance. That means, using an AED (and others) would result in the shock coming our of the piercings. It would diffently burn there.
@ORB_Dark_Angel, I meant more of how defibrillators dont bring you back from death.
@unknownjanitor, oh. Yeah, common misconception.
@ORB_Dark_Angel, path of least resistance— to a grounding source. It won’t go to the nipple rings unless that gets it closer to a ground. Take off your chain titty tassels that flip down to the earth. Undo the hooks your suspending yourself from. You’ll be fine
@unknownjanitor, actually even underwire bras can get in the way of the current.
ACTUALLY! As a lifeguard of five summers, if someone has nipple piercings, you just put the pads around the piercings. Fun fact you don’t actually put the pads on the nipples on it anyway.

@Dr Truth Divine, huh, when I was doing first aid training we were told to rip the piercings out before using the defibrillator
@Amethyst Sky, But you don’t put the defibrillator on the nipple. You put it three inches above the nipple, and on the left inner-side.
@Dr Truth Divine, thank you, I feel better.
@Dr Truth Divine, we were told it was because a current goes through them, since they are between the pads. Now that I'm looking it up though, I'm seeing that no burns actually happen.
@Dr Truth Divine, Alsp. Mythbusters tested this. If you’re curious what happens. Just look up and watch that episode.
@Amethyst Sky, But the current travels through the body. It doesn’t trace a line over the skin. Think like sticking a needle through jello. You don’t go on top, you go through. It would be pretty useless if it just electrocuted the surface of the skin.
It travels through the body in a straight line and crosses the heart - possibly restarting it. Hence why we use it.
At no point would it come in touch the nipple, electrocute, the nipple, or even come in contact with the shallow piercing.
The piercing would have to be at least 2 or three inches deep just to come in contact with the charge. The metallic piercing is not large enough to divert the flow, and it doesn’t have enough static energy to slow it down either. And why would it? The metal electrodes at either end of the pads are the size of an Oreo. 100 times the amount of possible energy in a ring the size of a pencil eraser.
Piercing your body doesn't sound like a good idea at all. That's just my opinion though
@SeussAlmighty, as someone scared of needles can confirm. Who tf volunteers to be stabbed.
@SeussAlmighty, it's only a bad idea if you're a leaf on the wind....and I'm sad now
@SeussAlmighty, I have tons of piercings. But I absolutely understand why people don't want them.
People thinking we out here hooking up jumper cables to some dudes nipples
A friend of mine is in the program for electricians and his professor told him that he had a dude that wouldn't take off his nipple rings in the shop. He got shocked to hell like thirty minutes in. I don't think he died but I bet he wishes he did.
@stormageddon98, you shouldn't be getting live wires that close to your nipples anyway
@HSA, not with that attitude, anyway.
@I Are Lebo, lol
Fun fact: it's not
Idk, it sounds kinky to try a 9-volt battery and copper wire. 😏
Take a CPR class and you will find the placements for automatic ECD doesn’t need exact placement over a nipple. One on the side and center of the chest since the heart is more dead centered.
