Blast Injuries & Mass Casualties

Since I loaded you with posts yesterday (and according to my stats page A LOT of you are working your way through the cervical images today–wow, people), a nice bite-sized podcast to have with your morning latte. The CDC, always a reliable source for content, has a podcast on Blast Injuries: What Clinicians Need to Know. It clocks in at under 3 minutes–barely enough time to set the speed and incline on your treadmill. However, if this brief audio isn’t enough to satisfy your need for info on the subject…

You can check out the dedicated page for mass casualties, which has resources on everything from caring for pediatric and elderly blast victims to managing your own stress after the fact. There’s also an explosions and blast injuries clinical primer and a one- or three-hour training, Bombings: Injury Patterns and Care.
