reference[edit]

this might be a good source to add(will do a lit. search for more)

  • "Time Phases of Acute Radiation Syndrome - Radiation Emergency Medical Management". www.remm.nlm.gov. Retrieved 7 October 2017.--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 00:56, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
  • [1]................and more lit. as needed[2]

may become an article of interest due to more than 1000 NK troops [3]

  • 'pathophysiology' section 'prevention' section and 'cause' section need references, and 'diagnosis' needs to be expanded--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 18:14, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Biological timeline of radiation poisoning be merged into this article. I think that the content in the "Biological timeline of radiation poisoning" article can easily be explained in the context of "Acute radiation syndrome". They are primarily talking about the same thing. This article is of a reasonable size that the merging of Biological timeline of radiation poisoning will not cause any problems as far as article size or undue weight is concerned. 81.132.7.122 (talk) 11:20, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

  • Support as well – Finnusertop (talkcontribs) 21:50, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Support; makes sense to me and will be a net improvement for the topic. NekoKatsun (talk) 23:48, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Crucial information missing[edit]

What is the actual effect on the human body? Is it bone marrow loss? This is very implicit. Why does radiation cause death of bone marrow cells? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.182.250.204 (talk) 23:07, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
