Abstract
Male military personnel were exposed to the shock wave of 1 p.s.i. generated from the detonation of 500 tons of TNT. The drug produced no measurable change in heart rate or blood pressure in pre- or post-blast exposed personnel. The mood test proved to be a sensitive indicator of psychological change in pre- and post-blast exposed subjects the administration of diazepam produced only small alterations in this effect.
