The SMART Tape™ is specifically designed to assess the severity of injuries to child casualties.
Providing evidence-based triage for injured children will utimatly improve the level of care provided to the most seriously injured.
This Tape splits children into five physiological groups and provides age-appropriate triage algorithms for each group.
Evidence-based approach to pediatric triage.
Adult-based assessment methods are not suitable for the triage of children. The stresses of an MCI and the emotional reaction to the presence of multiple injured children can make it easy to over prioritize child casualties beyond the seriousness of their condition and over that of potentially more critically injured adults.
The SMART Tape™ is specifically designed to best assess the severity of the injuries to child casualties.
Accurate on-scene triage will allow you to quickly identify those in need of valuable resources both at and away from the scene and prevent simply relocating the incident to the emergency department.
