Abstract:

Recently, Mohan et al.1 reported a study of blast effects on the retina and optic nerve, using a small custom built, enclosed blast chamber. This chamber was 50 cm long and 33 cm wide. Two parts of this chamber were separated by a Mylar membrane. The side of the chamber away from the test subject was pressurized until the Mylar membrane burst, thereby reportedly generating a blast wave.
