The Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City was heavily damaged by a bomb April 19, 1995. The blast killed 168 people.

CDC Releases New Blast Injury Application

The app provides guidance about specific blast injury patterns in order to help emergency responders and clinicians assess and treat patients from the blast.

In an effort to help public health and hospital healthcare professionals, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a new app for mobile devices called the CDC Blast Injury App. The application will communicate information regarding a blast or other mass casualty explosive event.

The agency announced it is intended to allow professionals to make critical decisions regarding the care and management of mass injuries and casualties from their mobile device. The app does this by providing guidance about specific blast injury patterns in order to help emergency responders and clinicians assess and treat patients from the blast. The CDC Blast Injury App also enables users to learn how to protect themselves against hazards specific to mass casualty explosive events. Because of the mobility of this information, it can be quickly accessed on the way to, or at the scene, of an event.

The app itself features different categories, such as “Understand Blast and Bombing Events” as well as “Tools for Healthcare Providers and Public Health Professionals,” all of which can be navigated using the touch of a finger.

The app is currently available on the App Store, though no word has been sent about the availability on other platforms such as Android. For more information regarding the application and mass casualty event preparedness, visit this site.
