Understand the mechanism of blast Injuries and the Principles of critical care is important fro the clinicians working in the emergency settings. This case illustrates penetrating hand trauma due to secondary blast injury. Secondary blast injury is due to objects accelerated by the blast wind and is the most commonly encountered type of blast injury. Depending on the size of the fragments, secondary blast injury may present as blunt or penetrating trauma. This case addresses the evaluation of hand trauma after exposure blast caused by.

is a rapid access, point-of-care medical reference for primary care and emergency clinicians. Started in , this collection now contains interlinked topic pages divided into a tree of 31 specialty books and chapters. Content is updated Missing: intestinal blast. Primary injuries. Primary injuries are caused by blast overpressure waves, or shock waves. These are especially likely when a person is close to an exploding munition, such as a land mine. The ears are most often affected by the overpressure, followed by the lungs and the hollow organs of the gastrointestinal tract.

  Identifying Blast Injuries > Primary and Secondary Blast Injuries. In our last post, we went over the basics of the four types of blast an increase in terrorism and the potential for responding to more blast injuries than in previous years, there is an urgency to fully understand them and coordinate a response plan. DISCUSSION:: Tissue damage from the blast wave or primary blast injury can be an important cause of occult trauma to the ocular, aural, pulmonary, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and neurologic systems. Awareness of the extensive corporal effects of the blast .

Sometimes these primary non-perforating intestinal blast injuries evolve into secondary intestinal perforation and can occur up to 14 days following initial blast because of ischemia [5,6].

Primary blast injury: Primary blast injury is due to the supersonic over-pressurization blast wave unique to high-order (HE) explosives. HE devices involve a detonation or the nearly instantaneous Missing: intestinal blast.

Primary blast injury affecting the GI tract is rare and usually accompanies primary blast injury to other organs. Shock waves cause compression then rapid re-expansion of the gas-filled gut, putting the gut wall under tension and causing acute, often multifocal perforation and mural haemorrhage (Fig 1).

Results: A total of survivors were examined; (%) of them sustained primary blast injuries, including with isolated eardrum perforation and 51 with other forms of blast injuries (18 with isolated pulmonary blast injury, 31 with combined otic and pulmonary injuries, and 2 with intestinal blast injury).

Blast lung injury was. Although rare, blast injury to the intestine can result from penetrating thoraco-abdominal extra-peritoneal gunshot (and shotgun) wounds despite the absence of injury to the diaphragm or to the peritoneum. Injuries of the spleen, small intestine and the mesentery by this mechanism have been previously reported in the world literature.

Such injury, due only to exposure to blast wave (primary blast) and not to other consequences of proximity to an explosion (for example penetrating – secondary blast – or burn injuries – quaternary blast) is known as primary blast lung injury (PBLI). Irwin RJ, Lerner MR, Bealer JF, et al.

Apr. (4) Intestinal injury is frequent after non-penetrating abdominal trauma, particularly after modern, high-energy transfer impacts.

Under these circumstances, delay in the diagnosis of perforation is a. Abdominal organ injury in a primary blast type is always challenging for diagnosis. Air containing abdominal viscera is most vulnerable to effects of primary blast injury.

In any patient exposed to a primary blast wave who presents with an acute abdomen, an abdominal organ injury is to be kept in a clinical suspicion.

Explosive blast may have five distinct acute effects on the body (see Figure ): The primary blast mechanism causes injuries as sole consequences of the shock wave–body interaction; the secondary blast mechanism is due to the propulsion of fragments of debris by the explosion and their connection with the body, which causes penetrating or blunt injuries; the tertiary blast mechanism is due to the.

During the Great Patriotic War, injuries to the colon accounted for % of all wounds of hollow organs. Out of all closed abdominal injuries, 36% were due to closed intestinal injuries; while in 80% of cases, the small intestine was damaged, and in 20% - thick.

In peacetime, intestinal injuries. Classification of Blast Injury Zuckerman’s classification of blast injuries is still relevant today (Zuckerman, ). Injuries are organized by the mechanism through which they are sustained, and are classified as primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary (Table 2), each with a unique pattern of injury.

The blast injury. Blast injuries are traditionally classified as primary, secondary, tertiary or quaternary (3): Primary blast injuries (PBI) result as an over-exposure to a blast wave. Effects from this injury are most apparent when the energy from the blast travels through organs of.

NOTES: Primary blast effects are caused by the blast wave itself (excludes penetrating and blunt-force injury); secondary blast effects are caused by particles propelled by the blast (penetrating or blunt-force injury); tertiary blast effects caused by acceleration and deceleration of the body and its impact with other objects (penetrating or blunt-force [including “coup-contrecoup”] injury).4.

Quaternary blast injuries. Quaternary blast injury is everything else not caused by primary, secondary or tertiary mechanisms.

Examples include burns, angina, crush injuries, asthma or COPD. Blast Injury. Trauma caused by explosions traditionally has been divided into the injury caused by the direct effect of the blast wave (primary injuries); the effects caused by other objects that are accelerated by the explosive wave, (secondary injuries); the effects caused by movement of the victim (tertiary injuries); and miscellaneous effects caused by the explosion or explosives.
