Pilot Test of a Proposed ChemicalBiologicalRadiationNuclear-Capable Mass Casualty Triage System
Cone, D., MacMillan, D., Parwani, V., and Van Gelder, C. (2008). Pilot Test of a Proposed Chemical/Biological/Radiation/Nuclear-Capable Mass Casualty Triage System. (Abstract only.) Prehospital Emergency Care. 12(2):236-40.
The authors share results of a pilot test that measured a triage system for patients exposed to chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear contamination. They found that while the algorithm could be applied by trained paramedics, there was a significant under-triage rate and more research needs to be conducted.
