Medical and Surgical Triage
Sockeel, P., De La Villeon, B., Goudard, Y., et al. (2017). Medical and Surgical Triage. Journal of Visceral Surgery. 154(1):S13-S17.
The authors describe a framework for pre-hospital triage during mass casualty incidents (based on the ABCDE's of Advanced Trauma Life Support), emphasizing that triage across hospitals should be standardized, known to all staff, and dynamic. They cover ethical, logistical, and other challenges triage and recommend conducting exercises of disaster plans to anticipate any changes needed to mass casualty incident plans.
