The ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and terrorist activity worldwide have been associated with an increased incidence of blast injuries. While blast injuries share similarities with blunt or penetrating traumatic injuries, there are unique mechanistic elements of blast injury that create increased vulnerability to damage of specific organs. This review highlights the mechanism of blast-related injury, describes the common sequelae of blast exposure that may impact rehabilitation care, and summarizes the intervention strategies for these blast-related sequelae. © 2011 - IOS Press and the authors.

Dobutamine is a rare and unrecognized cause of eosinophilic myocarditis (EM). It is even more unique for it to cause significant clinical deterioration. Patients with end stage cardiomyopathy have very little cardiac reserve and dobutamine induced myocarditis may cause enough harm to require urgent mechanical circulatory support. We describe a man with dilated cardiomyopathy that developed accelerated clinical deterioration from dobutamine induced EM. He had a predominance of right heart failure, requiring an urgent biventricular assist device and acutely responded to withdrawal of dobutamine. © 2014 by the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs.
