Double-Sided A6 NHS Ten Second Triage Aide-Mémoire Card
The Manchester Arena disaster called for differing approaches to the management of major incidents, as a consequence of the findings the Ten Second Triage (TST) system has evolved to assist with the First Response efforts to reduce the care time for the injured to receive treatment.
The primary focus of the Ten Second Triage (TST) tool is to provide lifesaving interventions immediately, while prioritising large numbers of casualties in a quick, simple, and effective manner.
One side sets out the Ten Second Triage (TST) algorithm, sets to allocate P1, P2, P3 & Not Breathing statuses (Slap Bands).
The other side sets out the METHANE reporting tool.
