What is an emergency shunt trip?
Shunt trip circuit breakers shut off electrical power during emergencies to prevent injury to people and damage to equipment. The shunt trip–a safety feature added to a regular circuit breaker–allows a location or appliance outside of the main breaker to also trigger a power shut-off.
What is a shunt trip pole breaker?
Shunt trip breakers essentially provide an off switch remotely or a direct link to a system outside the main breaker. For instance, when smoke triggers a smoke detector, the breaker trips automatically. This cuts the power to electrical equipment at the same time the smoke detector triggers the sprinkler.

The use of routine shunting and selective shunting was associated with a low stroke rate. Both methods are acceptable, and the individual surgeon should select the method with which they are more comfortable. The use of shunting during carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is controversial.
Is there any evidence that carotid shunting causes thromboembolic complications?
Several studies have shown that carotid shunting completely relieves cerebral ischemia caused by carotid clamping, as measured by EEG changes, middle cerebral artery velocity changes on TCD, or neurological status. It is also believed that there is no evidence that placing a shunt increases thromboembolic complications or causes arterial injury]
How does carotid shunting help with cerebral ischemia?
Several studies have shown that carotid shunting completely relieves cerebral ischemia caused by carotid clamping, as measured by EEG changes, middle cerebral artery velocity changes on TCD, or neurological status.
