CDC Posts Online Blast Injury Fact Sheets

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in collaboration with partners from the Terrorism Injuries Information, Dissemination and Exchange Project, as well as other experts in the field, have developed fact sheets for health care providers that provide detailed information on the treatment of blast injuries.

These fact sheets address background, clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, management, and disposition of blast injury topics. The fact sheets may be viewed and downloaded for use in the treatment of blast injury patients, in the training of clinical staff, or to disseminate to others, and will soon be available in Spanish, Chinese, and French.

Currently, fact sheets are available under the following headings: Blast Injuries: Essential Facts; Abdominal Blast Injuries; Blast Extremity Injuries; Ear Blast Injuries Eye Blast Injuries; Blast Lung Injury: Prehospital Care; Blast Lung Injury; Crush Injury and Crush Syndrome; and Bombings and Mental Health.

Additional fact sheet topics will be posted as they are developed. For more information, visit http://emergency.cdc.gov/masscasualties/blastinjuryfacts.asp.
