ND Mladenov

Abstract

BACKGROUND: In the treatment of severely injured patients, the term ‘blast trauma - damage control radiology` has been used parallel to the modern concept of damage control surgery and the allied development of continuous damage control resuscitation from patient retrieval, through all transfers, to appropriate primary treatment.

LEARNING POINTS: The aims of damage control radiology are: (1) rapid identification of life-threatening injuries including bleeding sites, (2) identification or exclusion of head or spinal injury, and (3) prompt and accurate triage of patients to the operating theatre for thoracic, abdominal, or both surgeries or the angiography suite for endovascular hemorrhage control.

MAIN BODY: The purpose of the presentation is to introduce my colleagues to the specifics of blast trauma among the peaceful population and on the basis of this, to draw the guidelines for its clinical and multimodal management.

CONCLUSION: Knowing the modern clinical aspects of blast trauma and its early diagnosis, allows the HTLS level to reduce mortality and increase the survival of the injured.
