Using screen-based simulation to develop and test a symptom-based terrorism triage algorithm

International Trauma Care (ITACCS) 2006; 16: 19-25

Educating first-contact health care providers in the care of potential terrorism victims is challenging because of the wide variety of potential presenting symptoms. A civilian, symptom-based algorithmic approach has been developed to aid health care providers in decision-making during the early encounter with these patients. We describe the use of a screen-based bioterrorism simulator as a source of hypothetical patients to test and refine these algorithms. We discuss future methods of potential testing, including paper case scenarios, computer modeling, and testing during field drills.

Testimonials

“This is incredibly helpful for training. I told my classmates and colleagues about how great this is for practicing. This is very marketable to CRNA students since we are always in a hot panic to learn things for clinical. It is very well made!”
