Today, Disaster Management Systems, Inc. (DMS) announced the availability of a revolutionary new tool for EMS educators to teach First Responders S.T.A.R.T. Triage. The tool is comprised of a handheld 5.5” wheel that can be rotated by the user to quickly determine the triage category for any patient.
Additionally, a QR code on the wheel allows users to access a series of ‘digital victims’ to practice and improve their triage skills using Smartphones.
“Knowing and retaining how to perform S.T.A.R.T. triage is vital to our First Responders but current decision-tree charts make it difficult to understand,” said Jeff Lengyel, Product Manager for DMS. “By placing S.T.A.R.T. triage into a ‘turn-to-learn’ rotating wheel design, students quickly understand that S.T.A.R.T. is simply a process of elimination.”
As the wheel rotates it prompts users to answer questions about a patient’s symptoms and displays the patient’s triage category when a correct answer is given.
“Like most EMS educators, I struggle with providing my students a simple way to grasp S.T.A.R.T triage,” said Henrie Watkins of Specialized Safety Services. “With the DMS training wheel and integrated Smartphone App my students can not only comprehend S.T.A.R.T. faster but have a simple tool they can use for anytime learning.”
The DMS training wheel is available directly from DMS for $6.97 individually, $39.97 in packs of 10. Special discounts apply to EMS educators, CERT members and fire departments.
