Abstract

[Abstract] Introduction: Compared with traditional START Triage Method, Sacco Triage Method is a new way for disaster scenes. However, due to the difficulties in disaster medical research, there is still no evidence to prove which one is more valuable. Aims: To assess and compare the value of START Triage Method and Sacco Triage Method in the death risk assessment of transport and the one-month death risk assessment of the earthquake group injured patients. Method: A retrospective analysis was conducted on 1612 patients who were transferred to the West China Hospital by assigning to different triage levels by Sacco Triage Method and START Triage Method respectively. Both of the triage methods were evaluated based on death cases on either during transport or in the emergency department, using area under the receiver-operator curve. Results: For death during the transport and in the emergency department, the receiver-operator curve of two groups reflected as 0.721 and 0.649. For death in a consequence, the receiver-operator curve of the two groups was revealed as 0.667 and 0.519. Discussion: As an accurate triage method, Sacco Triage Method may be used in mass casualty incident. It is a more valuable way than the START Triage Method for the evaluation of the death risk assessment of the earthquake group injured patients.
