Lerner, E., Schwartz, R., Coule, P., et al. (2008). Mass Casualty Triage: An Evaluation of the Data and Development of a Proposed National Guideline. (Abstract only.) Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. 2(S1): S25-S34.
The authors discuss the development of the SALT (sort, assess, life-saving interventions, treatment and/or transport) triage guidelines, based on the best available science and consensus opinion. SALT was developed as “a single overarching guide for unifying the mass casualty triage process across the United States.”
