The difference between sports concussion and blast injury

Posted Oct 16 2010 12:00am

Great video over at BrainLine

I learned a lot from this, namely:

  • Blast injury involves both compressing the body and expanding it during and after the blast
  • Gas bubbles can end up in the bloodstream as a result
  • Hollow organs like ears and lungs are especially vulnerable
  • Blast injury shares elements with sports concussion, but it is much more complex

Great video – worth a watch. Check it out here:   http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid1670076667?bctid=110843714001
