Injuries sustained from an explosion can have characteristics of blunt and penetrating mechanisms of injury. ★Primary Blast Wave: When the explosion occurs, a wall of air pressure quickly expands outward in all directions. Anyone close to the explosion will be struck by the pressure wave causing blunt injuries to the inside of the body, especially to hollow organs. ★Secondary Blast Wave: Immediately following the primary wave is all the debris from the explosion. It may be the remainder of the original container, shrapnel, glass or other materials from near by structures. This debris strikes the victims, causing penetrating injuries. ★Tertiary Blast Injuries: If the force of the explosion is great enough, victims can be thrown to the ground or into other solid objects, causing additional blunt and penetrating injuries.
