Cardiac Arrest From Explosion Accidents

Explosions often cause devastating injuries to victims. While most people think of traumatic injuries such as broken bones and lacerations, explosions can also cause serious internal injuries, including cardiac arrest. At the Doan Law Firm, our explosion injury attorneys want to discuss the various mechanisms of an explosion and how it can lead to a person’s sustaining cardiac arrest.

How Do Explosions Cause Cardiac Arrest?

While most people may not associate cardiac arrest as an injury that occurs after an explosion, that is not always the case. There are a few ways that a person can suffer from cardiac arrest due to an explosion: an exasperation of underlying medical conditions or hypovolemic shock.

  • Underlying medical conditions. In many cases, an incident as sudden and dramatic as an explosion can exasperate underlying heart conditions that a person may have and cause cardiac arrest.
  • Traumatic cardiac arrest. An explosion can cause various types of trauma to a person’s body, leading to a loss of blood (external loss or internal bleeding). When a person’s blood volume becomes too low (hypovolemic shock), their heart may not have enough blood to sustain itself, leading to cardiac arrest.

Without immediate treatment, which can include blood loss control, CPR, or the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), cardiac arrest is usually fatal within minutes of onset. Those who survive often sustain disabilities due to brain damage caused by blood loss to the brain.
