From the GMR: New Radiation Event Medical Management (REMM) version released

Please see the email below, forwarded from the NLM Radiation Event Medical Management team. Especially for librarians in healthcare facilities, you might want to consider downloading REMM in both the library and the emergency department, as well as any other appropriate locations. You can subscribe to the REMM listserv (which sends very few announcements) at http://www.remm.nlm.gov/email.htm.

The goals of the REMM site are to:
*Provide guidance for health care providers, primarily physicians, about clinical diagnosis and treatment during mass casualty radiological/nuclear (rad/nuc) events.
*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 event if the internet is not accessible.

Dear Radiation Event Medical Management (REMM) ListServ Member:

We are pleased to announce a major new version of the REMM web site:
"What's New on REMM" at http://remm.nlm.gov/whatsnew.htm.
*Download REMM 6/2009 to your computer or USB device: http://remm.nlm.gov/download.htm.
*Download Mobile REMM 6/2009 for to your personal mobile device: http://remm.nlm.gov/downloadmremm.htm.

REMM's most important new feature is a major update of the Dose Estimator for Exposure. This easy-to-use tool now employs algorithms for "vomiting" and "lymphocyte depletion kinetics" developed by the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) in their most current Biodosimetry Assessment Tool (BAT).

We strongly suggest you update any versions of REMM you have previously downloaded to your computer, USB drive, or mobile device.

As always, if you have comments or questions, please Contact Us directly.
