This course provides an overview of mass casualty management and reviews the tasks involved in MCI triage. The course is based on use of the START (Simple Triage And Rapid Treatment) algorithm for adults and the JumpSTART algorithm for children. These algorithms provide a simple and consistent process to sort casualties into priorities for treatment by using guidelines based on changes in vital signs.
By completing this course, providers of varying clinical experience will learn to effectively and efficiently assign a triage category to MCI patients. The course concludes with a series of interactive practice scenarios to practice the application of course concepts.
