  • Acute Radiation Sickness

    For example, damage to the GI is scored by evaluating the time of onset, severity, the frequency of vomiting or diarrhea.[symptoma.com] The patient is asymptomatic but full blood examination will show characteristic changes, with lymphocyte depression and gradual decrease in neutrophil and platelet counts.[health.gov.au] Destructive and irreparable changes in the GI tract and bone marrow usually cause infection, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalance. Death usually occurs within 2 weeks.[checkorphan.org]
