Blast associated injuries have been quantified into different classes based on the type of trauma that they create . Of these types of trauma, the neuropathology invoked by shock wave exposure is the most ambiguous . The properties associated with shock wave exposure have lead to multiple hypothesized mechanisms for brain trauma including: acceleration-based damage, a thoracic squeeze resulting in pressure pulses to the brain, or transference of energy from the shock wave into the brain via the skull [2, 3].
