There are numerous forms of you can suffer from if you have been involved in a road traffic accident; one of the most serious one is the crush syndrome.
Crush syndrome is a medical condition which can be characterised by shock and renal failure that follows a crushing injury to the skeletal muscle.
The syndrome was first reported since the early 20th century. It was observed in patients who had been trapped for extended periods of time in the rubble of collapsed buildings and were apparently healthy-looking. Soon after they had been rescued, they became pale, diaphoretic and eventually died.
The crush syndrome usually occurs when the patient had been trapped for several hours and the prolonged compression of skeletal muscle results in inadequate local perfusion, as well as direct trauma to the muscle tissue. This results in the comprised cells beginning to leak toxic substances as well as allowing sodium, calcium and water to move intercellularly. In addition, local hypoxia results in anaerobic cell function and lactic acid is produced. This takes place locally until the pressing force is removed. This is when accumulated toxins are released in the blood flow and can be fatal.
