Gunshot Wounds

Concept

 

Treat the wound, not the gun velocity

 

Management based on gun velocity old fashioned because

1.  Only 1/3 guns are known 

2.  High velocity guns can produce low energy transfer wounds

 

Wound Ballistics

 

Kinetic Energy = 1/2mv2

- important factor is tissue interaction

- energy transfer
