Quiz: How accurately can you triage 10 MCI patients?

Test your ability to apply the START algorithm to a collection of simulated MCI patients


EMS providers learn triage in their certification courses and occasionally review it during continuing education courses. Perhaps fortunately, it is infrequently used in the field. This and Limmer Education quiz will be a good review for when you are first on scene for “the big one.” How accurate will you be on these 10 simulated patients?

The quiz uses the START (Simple Triage and Rapid Transport) method principles, but can be related to common principles used everywhere. Pick the triage category for each patient.
