This detailed examination of the role of physicians in managing the medical effects of radiation leaks features expert contributions on a wide range of topics highlighted by the first-hand experiences of doctors treating victims of Japan's Fukushima accident.
Physicians' early response to Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident: Challenges and lessons learned.- General considerations in radiation disaster medicine.- Medical perspective.- Pre-hospital emergency medical response.- Hospital emergency medical response.- Disaster behavioral health: Psychological effects of the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident.- Management perspective: Structure of radiation emergency response in Japan.- Management perspective: Structure of radiation emergency response in International Organizations.- Radiation disaster medicine curriculum revisited in a post-Fukushima context.
While many books are available on disaster medicine, none is specifically devoted to the role of physicians in the management of patients exposed to radiation leakage from a damaged nuclear power plant. Radiation Disaster Medicine aims to fill this void based on the response to the Fukushima nuclear accident. Each chapter addresses principles and practices of radiation medicine within the specific context of that accident. Topics covered include the role of physicians in radiation disasters, the concepts of external and internal exposure, prehospital and hospital response, disaster behavioral health, and radiation emergency response from the perspective of national and international institutions. Most of the contributors are active educators and researchers in radiation medicine with first-hand experience in dealing with prehospital triage and management of patients within secondary and tertiary care hospitals in Japan.
