From NLM: New Web and Mobile Versions of Radiation Emergency Medical Management

From the NLM Technical Bulletin:

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) REMM (Radiation Emergency Medical Management) has released new online and mobile versions.

Key updates include:

  1. Mobile REMM: updated content for Android (new), iPhone, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile
  2. Nuclear Reactor Accidents: new content and references
  3. Potassium Iodide: new content and references
  4. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): 14 new pages with photos
  5. Seven new video screencast tutorials explaining key REMM interactive clinical tools
  6. Nuclear detonation clinical triage tool for use if medical response resources are scarce
  7. Simplified clinical algorithm for managing radiation exposure: new format and content

REMM seeks to:

  • Provide guidance for health care providers, primarily physicians, about clinical diagnosis and treatment of radiation injury during radiological and nuclear emergencies
  • Provide just-in-time, evidence-based, usable information with sufficient background and context to make complex issues understandable to those without formal radiation medicine expertise
  • Provide Web-based information that is also downloadable in advance, so that it would be available during an emergency if the internet is not accessible
