If the accident notification comes from a source other than usual emergency communications, get a call-back number and verify the accident prior to assembling the radiological emergency response team and preparing for patient admission.

This Guide Memo is a general compilation of Stanford's emergency procedures, including those for injuries and accidents, fires, earthquakes, and hazardous materials releases and spills. For more detailed information on disaster preparedness, please see the Department Emergency Planning Guidelines published by Environmental Health & Safety or contact Emergency Preparedness, Although radiation accidents are rare and often complex in nature, they are of great concern not only to the patient and involved medical staff, but to the media and public as well.

Yet there are few if any comprehensive publications on the medical management of radiation accidents. Medical Management of Radiation Accidents provides a complete reference for those concerned with radiation.

2 Radiation Incident Responders' Handbook (New Zealand) 1. 4 Purpose The purpose of the plan is to provide expert assistance to the emergency services following a radiological incident. This is achieved by: • Providing early information and advice to the emergency services at the scene of the event.

We searched publications and reports from MEDLINE, EMBASE, the International Atomic Energy Agency, the International Radiation Protection Association, the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation, the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the Radiation Emergency Assistance Center/Training Site radiation accident registry Cited by: Intervention planning and emergency preparedness can generally be regarded as comprising six stages: 1.

Identification of potential accidents and other emergency situations that may arise and the evaluation of the risks associated with these, 2. Development of an intervention plan to deal with the identified hazards, 3. Advising health and emergency professionals on the medical aspects of human exposure to radiation.

The Radiation Emergency Assistance Center/Training Site (REAC/TS), based at the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), is always on call to provide expertise to physicians worldwide regarding the medical aspects of a radiological or nuclear incident.

The video emphasizes the importance of using the Emergency Response. Radiation Emergency Medicine course. The Radiation Emergency Medicine course is intended for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and other healthcare providers.

First responders, emergency management and public health professionals may also find the course beneficial.

Notify. Cutaneous radiation injury (CRI) occurs when a high radiation dose of rad (2 Gy) or higher causes injury to the skin.

8 Symptoms of CRI can appear within a few hours or several days or weeks after exposure and may include itchiness, tingling, abnormal skin redness (erythema), and swelling caused by a buildup of fluid (edema). Depending on the radiation dose, symptoms of acute radiation.

Statistical summary of radiological accidents and other incidents causing radiation casualties compiled by Wm. Robert Johnston last updated 20 November These tables summarize data on radiation accidents and other incidents (i.e. intentional) that have caused acute radiation injury.

The word accident is derived from the Latin verb accidere, signifying "fall upon, befall, happen, chance."In its most commonly accepted meaning, or in its ordinary or popular sense, the word may be defined as meaning: some sudden and unexpected event taking place without expectation, upon the instant, rather than something that continues, progresses or develops; something happening.

30 people have lost their lives in 13 separate radiation accidents in the United States (Table 1). Information about these and other less serious US accidents is documented in the US Radiation Accident Registry, maintained at the Radiation Emergency Assistance Center/Training Site (REAC/TS) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.Background Radiation overexposure accidents are rare but can have severe long-term health consequences.

Although underreporting can be an issue, some extensive literature reviews of reported radiation overexposures have been performed and constitute a sound basis for conclusions on general trends.
