New NLM Goodies for the iPhone
WISER, Mobile REMM, and Health Headlines are now available as apps for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
WISER (Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders) is a tool to assist emergency responders with hazardous material (HAZMAT) incidents. WISER provides a wide range of information on chemical, biological, and radiological agents, including substance identification, physical characteristics, human health and emergency medical treatment information, and containment and suppression assistance.
WISER is also available as a standalone application for Microsoft Windows PCs, Windows Mobile devices, Palm OS PDAs and via the Web as WebWISER. WebWISER is compatible with mobile web browsers. See the WISER home page for more information.
REMM (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. It 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.
Health Hotlines is a compilation of organizations with toll-free telephone numbers to assist the public in locating health-related information. It is derived from DIRLINE, NLM’s Directory of Information Resources Online, which contains descriptions of almost 9,000 health and biomedical organizations and resources. Some of the subject areas included in Health Hotlines are AIDS, cancer, diseases and disorders, maternal and child health, aging, substance abuse, disabilities and mental health.
Health Hotlines is also available on the NLM’s Web site .
