  • Description:
    "In 1976, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) developed the first field triage decision scheme to help guide EMS providers through four major steps for deciding where to transport injured patients. Since then, the field triage decision scheme has been updated multiple times to include new information and research. The most recent update began in 2005 when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), working closely with ACS and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, convened meetings of experts to look at the latest research and to develop recommendations for updating the decision scheme. These experts--the National Expert Panel on Field Triage--had more than 100 years of experience combined and reviewed more than 160 research articles. The result was the (2006) Field Triage Decision Scheme: The National Trauma Triage Protocol. In January 2009, CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) Recommendations and Reports published a summary of the expert panel's decisions about the protocol and the rationale for making those decisions, along with a continuing education opportunity." - p. 5
