Radiation Emergency Medical Management (REMM)

Guidance on diagnosis and treatment for health care providers is available at the National Library of Medicine website "Radiation Emergency Medical Management":
  • Provides guidance for health care providers, primarily physicians, about clinical diagnosis and treatment of radiation injury during radiological and nuclear emergencies
  • Provides just-in-time, evidence-based, usable information with sufficient background and context to make complex issues understandable to those without formal radiation medicine expertise
  • Provides web-based information that is also downloadable in advance, so that it would be available during an event if the internet is not accessible

The name of this website recently changed from REMM to "Radiation Emergency Medical Management".
