Visceral Attacks. An enemy can also be caused to stagger by facing its back and holding R2 to unleash a charge attack. Once an enemy staggers, press R1 to execute a visceral attack. When an opponent has been staggered they are open for a lethal visceral attack - simply press R1 when directly in front or behind them.

First of all, what is visceral trauma? According to MedicineNet, visceral is referring to the viscera, the internal organs of the body, specifically those within the chest as the heart or lungs and abdomen as the liver, pancreas or intestines. In addition to torso organ injuries, we have chosen to include all non-orthopaedic trauma in the scope of the visceral trauma section. This includes initial work-up of any potentially severely injured patient including prehospital , as well as intracranial injuries and critical care for the trauma patient. The trauma patient has to be managed as potentially severely injured and with limited information. Following traumatic brain injury, torso trauma and especially the critically injured patients with ongoing bleeding, represent the major cause of preventable deaths.
It is simple and useful to divide abdominal visceral injuries into those caused by penetrating mechanisms of injury and those due to blunt mechanisms. Determination of the need for operative intervention is generally easier after penetrating trauma. Gunshot wounds to the abdomen should be explored, as should stab wounds to the anterior abdomen that penetrate the fascia. A midline incision is the standard approach to abdominal visceral injuries because of its ease and versatility. Abdominal exploration should be consistent and systemic so as not to miss significant injuries. Hollow viscus injury is most common after penetrating injury, while blunt injury most often results in injury to solid viscera.
A Visceral Attack is a gameplay mechanic in Bloodborne. In-Game Description. Visceral Attacks are interesting as they present the player with an opportunity to deal a lot of damage on a defenseless enemy. To trigger a visceral attack, a player must do one of three things: either parry a foe at the right time, doing enough stagger damage, or, a charged strong attack is struck on the foe's back, this type of visceral attack is described as a backstab by the community. Large enemies frequently are not possible to parry, and as such can only be backstabbed or staggered. For large, unparriable bosses, visceral attacks are only possible during a certain part of a fight, and are often, if not always limited to 1 or 2 moments during the entire encounter. It is important to note that the damage dealt by a Visceral Attack is governed mostly by the player's innate Skill stat, and, as such, players with high skill will get much better damage upon a visceral attack when compared to a player with low skill. Additionally, a visceral attack will be boosted by the blood-gems on the right-hand weapon at the moment of its execution. This includes elemental damage. Upon executing a visceral attack, if the player has taken damage and is still within the possibility of rallying, and recovering lost health, then that player fully recovers that lost health, and enemies that are close to the player when doing a visceral attack will be staggered briefly.
