This book aims to help clinicians who seek to conduct science and engineering based research on blast injuries as well as engineers and scientists who seek to apply their expertise to address blast injuries.
Blast injuries are prevalent. While the current conflict in Afghanistan is reaching its final stages, the legacy of landmines will sadly ensure that injuries and fatalities will continue to occur. The understanding of these injuries and the science behind their mitigation and treatment is a multi-disciplinary effort. Current knowledge has rapidly grown due to recent conflicts, yet the learning has not yet been captured in any formal way.
