  • How quickly can a patient be triaged using the START criteria?

    After initial training rescuers can triage each victim in 60 seconds or less.

  • Does a rescuer need special skills, education or tools to triage victims?

    This triage system was designed for rescuers with knowledge of first aid. As victims are encountered basic lifesaving care is administered. An airway is manually opened or a pressure dressing applied. Bystanders can be used and the rescuer moves to the next victim. Medical equipment should not be used at this point.
