Goals of CHEMM (Taken from CHEMM Site).
Taken from CHEMM-IST Site: "CHEMM-IST is a prototype decision support tool developed by experts in medicine and emergency response as an aid for identifying the chemical a patient was exposed to in a mass casualty incident. Since CHEMM-IST is currently in the prototype phase of development, it should not be used for patient care."
This site leads personnel through a series of questions to determine the type of chemical affecting a patient. The types are divided into four general categories: Knockdown, Pesticide, Acute Solvent, and Irritant Gas Syndrome.
