Caption: Blood transfusion. Male patients receiving blood transfusions after being exposed to radiation by the explosion of one of the reactors at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station, Ukraine. Exposure to large amounts of nuclear radiation causes radiation sickness. Symptoms vary depending on the dose. Internal bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract commonly occurs with extreme levels of exposure. Lower radiation levels damage the bone marrow which produces blood cells. The transfus- ions may replace blood lost by internal bleeding and raise the number of blood cells. The accident at Chernobyl occurred in April 1986. Photographed in the 6th Clinical Hospital, Moscow, Russia.
