# Which is a correct term-'Voltage shock' or 'current shock' or 'Power shock'?

Wikipedia says that,

Electric shock is the physiological reaction or injury caused by electric current passing through the (human) body.

An electric shock is caused by amount of current for a duration of $time$ and $voltage$. All these variables are used in calculating $Electric\,Power$.

$Electric-shock$ is a correct term but usually we hear the term $Voltage\,shock$. Is $Power \,shock$ or $current\,shock$ not a correct term?

Or am I totally wrong in my interpretation?

• I've never heard the term voltage shock, or the others you mention. I suppose that they mean the same thing, but you should read the context carefully in order to figure out what a particular author means. – garyp Sep 6 '16 at 1:51
