An article co-authored by Clinical Manager Lewis Andrews has been published in the peer-reviewed journal, Trauma.

The article is on the method of triaging multiple patients in a mass casualty incident used by ambulance services nationally, which was introduced in 2013.

This process, which was published in the AACE/JRCALC guidelines the same year, was developed at EEAST and then taken on by NARU (National Ambulance Resilience Unit), before being signed off by NASMed, the National Ambulance Service Medical Directors.

Lewis wrote the article with NARU Medical Director John Stephenson and Fionna Moore, Chair of NASMeD and Medical Director of London Ambulance Service.

Lewis said: “The publication of this article is the culmination of the work that has been carried out to ensure we have a triage sieve that is appropriate for ambulance staff to use in an mass casualty incident – it’s great to see that work started at EEAST has become the foundation for the national best practice.”

The article will feature in this month’s publication of Trauma and is also available to read online.
