Evaluating Remote Blast Exposure: The Salisbury Blast Interview

by Sarah Martindale, PhD ; Jared Rowland, PhD
Seminar date: 12/15/2020

Description: Exposure to explosions is common in military personnel. These events do not always cause traumatic brain injury (TBI), though most of what we know about effects of blast exposure is within the context of a TBI. This webinar will present an evaluation of the first interview developed to specifically evaluate blast exposure history. The interview captures a number of characteristics unique to blast that are experienced by an individual. Information is gathered for all events involving exposure to blast, regardless of the severity of or distance from the blast, which accounts for the great variability in events. Intended Audience: Researchers and clinicians with interest in evaluating blast exposure.
