What is the managing hazardous material incidents (MHMI) series?
The MHMI series is a three volume set (with a video) comprised of recommendations for on-scene (pre-hospital), and hospital medical management of patients exposed during a hazardous materials incident.
- Guidance for action levels in the instance of elemental or metallic mercury releases or spills. The action level guidelines are based on the ATSDR Chronic Minimal Risk Level and the EPA Reference Concentration.
- Medical Management Guideline (MMG) for Acute Chemical Exposure Publication intended to aid emergency department physicians and other emergency healthcare professionals who manage acute exposures.
- Summary of health effects, exposure, and recommendations in an easy-to-read magazine format.
