Causes of Explosion Injuries

Causes of Explosion Injuries

Military combat has been a major cause of blast injuries to U.S. service members. As reported on Brainline.org, greater than 50 percent of the combat injuries sustained in Afghanistan and Iraq were caused by explosives, including grenades, land mines, bombs, mortar and artillery shells, and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Blast injuries have been the most commonly treated injury among American soldiers treated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center since 2006, according to Brainline.org. Blast injuries can also result from accidents, such as gas explosions.

Types of Explosion Injuries

Types of Explosion Injuries

As reported in the Brainline.org article, there are four basic mechanisms in a blast injury:

  • Primary blast injury: The initial injury is from the explosion itself – an over-pressurization wave traveling at high velocity hits the individual and presses on the organs of the body. The ears, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, brain, and spinal cord are particularly susceptible to injury from the initial blast.
  • Secondary blast injury: Fragments flying through the air from the blast can cause penetrating injuries, including traumatic brain injury.
  • Tertiary blast injury: An individual thrown by the blast into a stationary object such as a wall or a steering wheel may sustain blunt force trauma injuries.
  • Quaternary blast injury: Trauma associated with the explosion, such as significant blood loss from an amputation or inhalation of toxic gasses, may occur.
