WHAT LEADS TO INTERNAL ORGAN INJURIES AND WHAT TYPES ARE COMMON?
Various accidents, including those involving cars, motorcycles, trucks, bicycles, pedestrians, trains, buses, and slip-and-falls, can result in internal bleeding and trauma to organs. Internal injuries can affect solid organs like the kidneys, pancreas, spleen, and liver, as well as hollow organs such as the stomach, small intestine, bladder, ureter, and colon.
Injuries often occur due to:
Blunt trauma: Impact from accidents like automobile collisions or falls can compress internal organs, causing injury and internal bleeding.
Deceleration trauma: Rapidly stopping vehicles can lead to organs shifting, blood vessel tearing, and internal bleeding.
Penetrating trauma: Foreign objects or fractured ribs can penetrate the body, causing tears in blood vessels and serious internal damage.
SYMPTOMS OF INTERNAL ORGAN INJURIES
While victims might not immediately notice mild pain after an accident, there are specific symptoms to watch for:
Spleen injuries may cause radiating pain to the left shoulder.
Small intestinal tears can result in gradually worsening pain.
Kidney or bladder injuries may lead to blood in the urine.
It's crucial to seek medical attention promptly after an accident, even if symptoms are not immediately evident. Internal injuries may not be visible, but symptoms can include visible bruising, swelling, and signs of significant blood loss.
