Cross, K.P. and Cicero, M.X. (2012). Independent Application of the Sacco Disaster Triage Method to Pediatric Trauma Patients. (Abstract only.) Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. 27(4):306-11.
The authors applied the Sacco Triage Method to 90,037 records of children = 18 years of age with complete initial scene data from the National Trauma Database for the period 2007-2009. They concluded that this method is a highly accurate predictor of mortality in pediatric trauma patients in this registry database.
