  • Blast injuries [r]: Injuries resulting when a person is struck by the pressure differentials of the shock wave of an explosion (primary); is struck by particles impelled with violent force from an explosion (secondary); is physically thrown about by the blast (tertiary); or is affected by fire, building collapse or other effects of the explosion on the victim's surroundings (quaternary) [e]
  • Crush injury [r]: Physiological consequences of prolonged heavy pressure on body parts, which can be catastrophic if released suddenly without patient preparation; the crushing releases toxic substances from devitalized muscle [e]
