Abstract

Due to extensive use of explosive weaponry, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have led to a significant increase in blast-induced injuries, which manifest as complicated neural cellular damage. This research is serving two purposes: 1. verifying a methodology to measure the physical characteristics of the blast waves by using a MEMS capacitor pressure sensor and 2. performing In-Vivo study for long term monitoring of intracranial pressure (ICP) in animal models exposed low-level blast.
