Streamlined Focused Assessment with Sonography for Mass Casualty Prehospital Triage of Blunt Torso Trauma Patients

Hu, H., He, Y., Zhang, S., and Cao, Y. (2014). Streamlined Focused Assessment with Sonography for Mass Casualty Prehospital Triage of Blunt Torso Trauma Patients. (First page only.) American Journal of Emergency Medicine. 32(7):803-6.

The authors used a streamlined version of Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma (sFAST) to perform field triage of injured patients for the first 24 hours after a large earthquake. They compared their results to those obtained using the START algorithm, and determined that ultrasound yielded significantly more predictive information in a similar period of time.
