Treatment for Radiation Sickness

There is no antidote to radiation, but symptomatic treatments are available with antinausea drugs, painkillers, and antibiotics. Since radioactive residue would likely be on clothing and skin, decontamination procedures apply the same as with chemical exposure. Decontamination team members should have appropriate protective suits available to carry out their task without danger. Additionally, radiation can cause problems in every organ of the body. Therefore, doctors and nurses have to maintain a vigil with multiple daily monitoring of the blood cell counts, cardiac rhythm, vital signs, and other body functions. When the blood tests confirm immune system compromise, the doctors have to place the victim into reverse isolation.

In conclusion, we have been at war since September 11, 2001. The elusive enemy outside the boundaries of the "Axis of Evil" has no flag or national identity and is loyal only to a perverted religious dogma. Consequently, our government is undergoing a massive reorganization with the establishment and evolution of the Office of Homeland Security. One crucial component of this effort must be the treatment of large numbers of victims.
 
Accordingly, hospitals have to take on the added responsibility of revising their disaster response plans. Such plans require cooperation with civil defense and police and fire departments in any given community. At this time, it is likely that few hospitals have been able to accomplish this. There is a need for continuing education programs, purchase of capital equipment, and stockpiling of supplies. Most hospitals cannot afford the additional financial burden. Therefore, the OHS needs a division of public health that would set national standards for terrorism disaster response plans, provide continuing education, coordinate mock disaster drills, and provide funding. Since our government leaders have alerted us to the inevitability of a series of large-scale terrorist attacks, the only way we can remain strong as a nation is for every community to be prepared to control the damage and save lives.
