Current refers to the amount of electric current flowing through the body, with higher currents causing more severe injuries. Path refers to the route the electric current takes through the body, as different paths can result in different levels of injury. Time refers to the duration of the electric shock, with longer durations increasing the likelihood and severity of injuries. Therefore, these three factors play a crucial role in determining the level of injury from an electric shock.
