Effect of the 2011 Revisions to the Field Triage Guidelines on Under- and Over-Triage Rates for Pediatric Trauma Patients

Lerner, E.B., Cushman, J.T., Drendel, A.L. et al. (2017). Effect of the 2011 Revisions to the Field Triage Guidelines on Under- and Over-Triage Rates for Pediatric Trauma Patients. Pre-hospital Emergency Care. 21(4):456-460.

The authors describe results from a retrospective study that compared rates of over- and under-triage of pediatric patients using the 1999, 2006, and 2011 Field Triage Guidelines. They concluded that there is significant under-triage of pediatric patients using existing guidelines, and more research is needed to modify them for use in triage of this population.
