Use of SALT Triage in a Simulated Mass-Casualty Incident

Lerner, E.B., Schwartz, R.B., Coule, P.L., et al. (2010). Use of SALT Triage in a Simulated Mass-Casualty Incident. Pre-hospital Emergency Care. 14(1): 21-25.

This study evaluated the accuracy of SALT (sort–assess–lifesaving interventions–treatment/transport) triage during a simulated mass-casualty incident; the average time it took to make triage designations; and providers' opinions of SALT triage. The authors concluded that the accuracy rate was higher than those published for other triage systems, and of similar speed.
