Lesperance, R.N. and Nunez, T.C. (2015). Blast Injury: Impact on Brain and Internal Organs. (Abstract only.) Critical Care Nursing Clinics of North America. 27(2):277-87.
Based on a literature review, the authors discuss some key points for the immediate care of blast injury victims. Specifically, they note that these patients should be treated as having multisystem trauma and managed according to Advanced Trauma Life Support guidelines, and damage control resuscitation should be practiced until definitive hemorrhage control has been achieved.
