Acute Patient Care Guidelines
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Chemical Hazards Emergency Medical Management (CHEMM). (2017). Acute Patient Care Guidelines.
Emergency medical service and hospital-based healthcare providers can use the information on this webpage to prepare to care for patients exposed to select chemicals. Guidelines are split into prehospital and hospital management and are currently available for ammonia, chlorine, hydrogen cyanide, mustard agents, nerve agents, and phosgene. Once users select the hazard, information is provided by zone (e.g., hot zone, decontamination zone, and support zone).
