Brief Description:

Triage is a system utilized at mass casualty incidents for sorting or categorizing patients based on the severity of their injuries and need for critical intervention, relative to the available resources. But how should our assessment and treatment be adjusted once we have sufficient resources to care for all the casualties?

Paramedics of all levels will benefit from this paramedic rounds focusing on MCI, as you will be able to:

  • Describe the basic principles of mass casualty triage
  • Relate the actions required to optimize care for the maximum number of salvageable patients
  • Modify your plan of action to address all patients once additional resources have arrived
  • Integrate the General Traumatic Arrest Protocol into standard MCI principles and practice
