A Scientific Look at START and Our Ability to Do It
Cannon, W. and Heightman, A.J. (2015). A Scientific Look at START and Our Ability to Do It. Journal of Emergency Medical Services. May 4.
The authors analyzed START triage application in several MCIs to determine how efficient, effective and consistently it was performed. In the article they also discuss when it may be appropriate for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel to use other parameters (such as resources available and hospital capabilities) to perform triage and patient distribution in an optimal manner.
