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.

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.
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.
