First Responder Accuracy Using SALT During Mass-casualty Incident Simulation
Lee, C.W., McLeod, S.L., Van Aarsen, K., et al. (2016). First Responder Accuracy Using SALT During Mass-casualty Incident Simulation. (Abstract only.) Prehospital Disaster Medicine. 31(2):150-4.
The authors compared triage accuracy, error patterns, and time to triage completion using SALT during a mock mass casualty incident using 8 moulaged actors following a 30-minute didactic training of second year fire service and paramedic students. They found that accuracy was slightly higher among paramedic students (79.9% vs. 72.0% for fire students), and suggest that fire service personnel may be used to support triage during MCIs when medical resources are limited.
