These are wounds from either accidental radiation or therapeutic radiation. Over time, prolonged exposure weakens the immune system, leading to prolonged healing time and chronic wounds. When radiation poisoning is severe, it damages exposed tissue and needs to be cared for immediately.
Symptoms of radiation poisoning usually occur right after exposure but they may happen over time, and they may come and go. Symptoms include nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, headache, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, bleeding, hair loss, swelling, itching, and redness of the skin, and other skin problems.
are human amniotic fluids and/or amniotic membrane tissues that have been minimally manipulated into a liquid or patch format. Amniotic tissue allografts can be placed on or around a wound to serve the same function that they do in utero, which is to cover, protect and nourish tissue.
Amniotic membranes, when used as a biological dressing, helps wound healing by acting as a foundation for re-growth of soft tissue.
Prior to application of the membrane, a thorough history of the patient is necessary as to how the wound was formed, any previous treatments and Chronic Illnesses along with eligibility.
