Compared with traditional START Triage Method, the Sacco Triage Method is a new way to access death risk in disaster scenes. However, due to the difficulties in disaster medical research, there is still no evidence to prove which one is more effective.
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 mass trauma patients.
A retrospective analysis was conducted on 1,612 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 the area under the receiver-operator curve.
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.
As an accurate triage method, the Sacco Triage Method may be used in a mass casualty incident. It is a more effective way than the START Triage Method for the evaluation of death risk assessment of the mass trauma patients.
First aid in a short time is the key to saving lives. As undergraduates step into society, they should have enough ability to save others. As a result, first aid knowledge and training are essential for them.
To investigate the cognition level of the first aid knowledge among undergraduates, and to improve the training for undergraduates.
A questionnaire was designed for this study. It includes the basic information of the test subjects, attitude towards first aid, level of first aid knowledge, etc. The subjects of the questionnaire were mainly undergraduates in Sichuan province.
There were 302 valid questionnaires. The percent correct of the first aid basic knowledge quiz was only 47.62%. Using Chi-Square tests to analyze, medical education can make a significant difference in the level of first aid knowledge. (Chi-Square=251.004, P<0.01) Additionally, 78.81% of undergraduates thought it was significant to learn and master first aid knowledge, and the most common way to learn first aid knowledge was through university (81.46%).
Universities should strengthen the training for undergraduates to improve their first aid skills. This is a feasible approach to promote a public level of first aid knowledge.
