Acute radiation sickness is caused by exposure of the human body to high levels of radiation in a short period of time.
Symptoms of acute radiation sickness include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, loss of appetite, leukocytopenia (a decrease in the white blood cell count, which can lead to infection), anemia, thrombocytopenia (a low platelet count, which can lead to internal and external bleeding and poor healing of wounds), dizziness, fever, headache, hair loss, and cognitive impairment.
With options for acute radiation sickness treatment and prevention expected to be available in the near future, domestic first responders and military commanders may be able to tolerate increased amounts of radiation exposure.
Once radiation is identified as a hazard in a radiological dispersal attack, the administration of Protectan or Ex-RAD could be expected to increase survivability rates and possibly decrease the risk of acute radiation sickness symptoms interfering with lifesaving operations.
Those who were evacuated returned weeks later to an apocalyptic landscape strewn with damaged homes and dead animals; those who had been forced to stay were dazed, weak, and feverish, and soon exhibited signs of acute radiation sickness. Most have since died.
Jan 21-Feb 19 REGARDLESS A VISIT to a nuclear research laboratory takes an unexpected turn this week when you are bitten by a radioactive spider, giving you the powers of a man with acute radiation sickness.
Countless Soviet commissions and medical findings underreported, by two orders of magnitude, the number of patients hospitalised with acute radiation sickness and nasopharynx cancer -- especially the all-too-slowly evacuated residents of the 30-kilometre "exclusion zone" around Chernobyl.
The greatest harm was inflicted on emergency workers; some succumbed quickly to acute radiation sickness and show a slight rise in leukemia.

Nov 22-Dec 20 SAGITTARIUS A VISIT to a nuclear laboratory goes horribly wrong when you are bitten by a radioactive spider, giving you the powers and abilities of a man with acute radiation sickness.
