2What is Triage? “Triage” sortir Evaluasi berdasarkan kebutuhan medis dan urgensi pada masing2 klien dalam waktu terbatasThe word “triage” is based upon a French term that means “to sort”. In the emergency medical setting the triage process attempts to sort and prioritize patients according to their acute medical needs. This process is not meant to discover the fine details of a patient’s condition and needs but to grossly sort those seeking care based upon a limited history and physical assessment by triage personnel. Triage categorization may not be strictly dependent upon patient-specific information. Resource availability and time factors may influence triage decisions. For example, in normal Emergency Department triage, a patient who ordinarily would be triaged in an intermediate category when patients are being seen rapidly after triage may be classified as critical if the patient load is high and the patient is likely to be endangered by a longer wait if classified as intermediate.
3Triage is a dynamic process and is usually done more than once. Triage is a dynamic process. Every time we reevaluate a patient we are, in essence, re-triaging them. We add, subtract or maintain resources based upon our assessment of the progress of the patient’s condition. The same holds true in disaster triage. Additional information is acquired with each stage of triage. The additional information about patient condition and incoming information about resource availability may result in any patient being upgraded or downgraded in triage priority at any stage. Hopefully, no MCI patient will be medically assessed only once.
4Primary Disaster Triage Triage based on physiologyKemampuan pasien dalam menghadapi /mengkompensasi trauma atau injuriBila gagal prioritas tinggiPrimary MCI triage is similar to the primary survey (or initial assessment in the EMT-B curriculum) in that it focuses on physiology rather than actual injuries or medical illnesses. By assessing the most vital physiologic functions, primary triage helps to determine whether or not a patient’s systems are able to compensate for the acute insult. Those who are unable to maintain vital body functions on initial assessment are assigned higher priority.
5Primary Disaster Triage The most commonly used adult tool in the US and Canada is the START tool.The pediatric MCI primary triage tool most commonly used in the US and Canada is Jump START.The most commonly used adult primary MCI triage tool used in North America is the START tool. The most commonly used pediatric tool is JumpSTART. START and JumpSTART are also utilized in other countries around the world. Both tools will be discussed in depth in the “START and JumpSTART” session of this resource.Other tools are used by some agencies for MCI primary triage but few are tailored specifically for the MCI setting.
6The Best Tool?No MCI primary triage tool has been validated by outcome data.No primary MCI triage tools, including START and JumpSTART, have been validated by clinical outcome data. Research is needed to determine how to best perform primary triage for patients of all ages and for various incident types.Although not validated by research, START and JumpSTART have gained acceptance because they are based on physiology, are relatively simple to perform and provide at least a basic objective structure for the task of primary triage.Wiseman DB, Ellenbogen R, Shaffrey CI. “Triage for the Neurosurgeon”, Neurosurg Focus 12(3), Available on the Internet at
9NATO GuidelinesRedAirway obstruction, cardiorespiratory failure, significant external hemorrhage, shock, sucking chest wound, burns of face or neckYellowOpen thoracic wound, penetrating abdominal wound, severe eye injury, avascular limb, fractures, significant burns other than face, neck or perineum
10NATO GuidelinesGreenMinor lacerations, contusions, sprains, superficial burns, partial-thickness burns of < 20% BSABlackHead injury with GCS<8, burns >85% BSA, multisystem trauma, signs of impending death
11All ambulatory patients are initially tagged as Green. START: Step 1Triage officer announces that all patients that can walk should get up and walk to a designated area for eventual secondary triage.All ambulatory patients are initially tagged as Green.
12START: Step 2Triage officer assesses patients in the order in which they are encounteredAssess for presence or absence of spontaneous respirationsIf breathing, move to Step 3If apneic, open airwayIf patient remains apneic, tag as BlackIf patient starts breathing, tag as Red
13START: Step 3 Assess respiratory rate If ≤30, proceed to Step 4 If 30, tag patient as Red
14START: Step 4 Assess capillary refill If ≤ 2 seconds, move to Step 5 If 2 seconds, tag as Red
15START: Step 5 Assess mental status If able to obey commands, tag as YellowIf unable to obey commands, tag as Red

22Key Points about MCI Triage MCI triage will never be logistically, intellectually, or emotionally easy…but we must be prepared to do it using the best of our knowledge and abilities.FEMA Photo Library
23Key PointsThe physiology of adults and children differ; therefore different primary triage systems should be usedUse JumpSTART for infants through older childrenUse START for young adults and olderPrimary triage is just the first look at an MCI victim, similar to the primary/initial survey/assessment
