What is a Crush Injury?

A crush injury happens how you would expect. When a part of your body, such as your arms, legs, or torso, is compressed between two surfaces it results in crush injuries. The length of time a body part is crushed, as well as the force used in the crushing, affects the degree of damage. For this reason, victims must be extracted as quickly as possible from crushed vehicles, in structure collapses, or other situations in which a crush injury can occur.

The trauma associated with a crush injury often causes:

If your crush accident is not fatal, the chances are that it will still be incredibly debilitating. If the bones in the impacted part of the body are shattered beyond healing, then doctors may make the difficult choice to amputate the body part. As a result, you may have to adjust your life to being an amputee. Such a huge change can be incredibly traumatizing and force you to completely up-end the way you live your life. You may have to move to a more accessible home, you have to get a new job, you may even lose the ability to live independently. The truth is, a crush injury is more than just an injury, it is a complete, forced shift in your lifestyle.

Crush Syndrome

While the damage from the primary injury may be catastrophic, the complications from a crush injury can still be worse. Crush syndrome generally occurs when the blood flow is restored to affected muscles, which results in toxins from the tissues entering the bloodstream. These toxins can cause systemic trauma and can result in death if not treated correctly. Statistically, crush syndrome is the top cause of death in earthquakes other than those who die from direct trauma.
