Wise old Android

The National Library of Medicine (NLM), have launched the latest version of their Wiser software for the Android

WISER's Help Identify Chemical capability is now available on the Android platform. It allows responders to identify and validate an unknown chemical based on the following criteria:

o physical properties of the substance gathered by observation or sensors
o signs and symptoms of victims of exposure
o the ability to categorize a substance, such as a substance used in a meth lab or a flammable substance
o hazard values from NFPA 704 placards
o transportation identification, including DOT placards, type of road trailer, and type of rail car

It will also allow users to benefit from WISER's protective distance mapping feature on their Android device: visualize the areas likely to be affected during the first 30 minutes after a substance is spilled or released on a live map. The Department of Transportation's Emergency Response Guidebook serves as the source of WISER's protective distance data.

WISER for Android can be downloaded and installed directly from the Google Play Store - here

NLM also stated that you should look out for these exciting additions in the coming months:
• WISER for iOS and WISER for Android 4.5, which adds chemical reactivity, triage procedures, and WISER’s full set of radiological tools to these mobile platforms
• WISER 4.6, which will add many new substances to WISER and update much of WISER’s backend data, including its HSDB (Hazardous Substances Data Bank) substance data
