Radiation Sickness Treatment
Radiation sickness is likely to follow when any portion of the body has been exposed to the direct rays of the blast. In severe cases there will be nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, swelling of the skin, as well be as a feeling of weakness and prostration, followed by coma, and perhaps death.
Milder doses of radiation may produce feelings of weakness, followed by vomiting and diarrhea, and perhaps some prolonged infection. With proper treatment, most of these cases will eventually make a satisfactory recovery. Lighter doses of radiation may produce few if any symptoms, except a mild feeling of nausea.
Blood transfusion may have to be given-if there is any blood available. Certainly in any overwhelming disaster there will be far too little blood to meet all for the less severe cases that really have a chance to recover.
