REMM now boasts a Multimedia Library stocked with animations,
illustrations, tables, and photos on radiation basics, radiation
incidents, contamination, safety, and triage and transport. The
multimedia presentations help visually demonstrate many of the
concepts discussed on the site.
REMM also has uploaded four new videos on its YouTube channel:
Nuclear Detonation Fallout
Nuclear Detonation Effects
NLM’s REMM site was created to provide guidance for health care providers
during radiological and nuclear emergencies; to provide usable information
that’s understandable to those without formal radiation medicine expertise;
and to provide web-based information that is also downloadable in advance
to your computer or mobile device so that it would be available during an
emergency if the internet is not accessible. Check out all the materials
on the REMM website.
REMM was produced by the Department of Health and Human Services,
Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, Office
of Planning and Emergency Operations, in cooperation with the National
Library of Medicine, Division of Specialized Information Services, with
subject matter experts from the National Cancer Institute, the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention, and many US and international consultants.
