A Modified Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment Algorithm from the New York City
Arshad, F.H., Williams, A., Asaeda, G., et al. (2015). A Modified Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment Algorithm from the New York City (USA) Fire Department. Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. 30(2):199-204.
The authors evaluated whether modified START using an intermediate orange category would reduce rates of over- and under-triage. They found that comparison with real MCI data is needed, but that FDNY-START may reduce rates of over-triage without needing significant additional investments in training.
