Pepper, M., Archer, F., and Moloney, J. (2019). Triage in Complex, Coordinated Terrorist Attacks. (Abstract only.) Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. 34(4)442-448.
The authors reviewed literature on the 2011 Oslo/Utoya Island (Norway), 2015 Paris (France), and 2015 San Bernardino (California USA) terrorist attacks and found there were “significant barriers to the implementation of triage systems designed around flow charts, physiological variables, and the use of tags.”
