The classic force vector that results in mid-face fractures is similar to that of traumatic brain injury and occurs when a motor vehicle occupant impacts the steering wheel, dashboard, or windshield. Nearly all of these subtypes of injury are secondary to compressive strain. This mechanism is associated with the greatest morbidity for the driver and front-seat passenger, while the forces are attenuated for the back-seat passenger impacting the more compliant front seat. 9 10 Trauma Overview ■ Abdominal Injury Shear Force SECTION 1 X Reactive Force Reactive Force Initial Force Initial Force Horizontal Deceleration Vertical Deceleration FIGURE 1-6 Various mechanisms of injury for thoracic aorta injury.

Passenger restraint systems, which include safety harnesses and child car seats, keep the passengers’ velocity equal to that of the car and prevent the passengers from generating a differential in momentum and striking the interior of the car. Also, they more evenly distribute loads applied to the victim across a greater surface area thus decreasing stress. Even with restraint systems the occupants of a car can develop relative momentum and kinetic energy during a crash. This energy and momentum can be dissipated by air bags, which convert it into the work of compressing the gas within the device.
