This is an analysis of 66 patients injured in a bomb blast, 6 of whom died at the scene. The nature of the injuries and mechanism by which they occurred, showed that secondary and tertiary blast injuries (concussion, laceration and fractures) caused by flying debris set in motion by the blast-wave were more common as compared to the primary blast injuries (blast lung and flash burns). Evaluation of the severity of injuries, in different types of disasters can be estimated which can serve as a basis for the planning of disaster management.
