The Basic/EMT task of triage assessment is fully illustrated using 3D graphics and interactive exercises to reinforce key learning concepts. This lesson includes: assessing the situation, assessing the patients, numerous triage techniques, performing various first response treatments, performing secondary triage, protocols of transporting, as well as performing physical exam.

This application is in English or French, depending on the language set on your device. (Non-English and French Devices will show the English Version only). Proceeds from the sale of this App supports future development of the CTAS and its educational materials.
By using the official application, you can be assured that you are using the most current and accurate scale as developed and revised by the National Working Group.
Triage accurately! It helps patients receive the care and measures your acuity and volume against other facilities with reliability. The CTAS is used in many countries around the world for setting patient priority.
The Canadian Triage & Acuity Scale (CTAS) is a tool that enables Emergency Departments (ED) to:
• Prioritize patient care requirements
• Examine patient care processes, workload, and resource requirements relative to case mix and community needs
The CTAS allows ED nurses and physicians to:
• Triage patients according the type and severity of their presenting signs and symptoms
• Ensure that the sickest patients are seen first when ED capacity has been exceeded due to visit rates or reduced access to other services
• Ensure that a patient's need for care is reassessed while in the ED
The CTAS allows ED managers to:
• Measure the case mix (volume and acuity) of patients who visit the ED
• Determine whether the ED has an operational plan and the resources to meet patient needs
• Assess the ED's role within the hospital and health care region
The triage level assigned using the CTAS criteria is a mandatory data element to be used in all Canadian Hospital Emergency Departments for reporting to the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).
Training in the use of the CTAS in the clinical context is recommended before using this application to assist in clinical decision-making.
Since not all Mass Casualty Incidents (MCI) and Natural Disasters occur on bright sunny days it is important to be prepared for handling these terrible situations during the 12 out of 24 hours that are dark. To be truly 24/7 prepared you should utilize triage lights in your emergency response equipment. This is a simple tool to make the lives of all first responders a little easier.
Whenever a MCI occurs in the evening or late at night and locating and identifying priority patients is essential utilize the Triage application to aid in your efforts. A study has shown that by utilizing lights for triage you reduce patient collection times by over 30% with a reduction in patient errors from 4 patient errors down to 1 error. Following is the triage code:
1 - Immediate: The casualty requires immediate medical attention and will not survive if not seen soon. Any compromise to the casualty's respiration, hemorrhage control, or shock control could be fatal.
2 - Delayed: The casualty requires medical attention within 6 hours. Injuries are potentially life-threatening, but can wait until the Immediate casualties are stabilized and evacuated.
3 - Minimal: "Walking wounded," the casualty requires medical attention when all higher priority patients have been evacuated, and may not require stabilization or monitoring.
4 - Expectant: The casualty is expected not to reach higher medical support alive without compromising the treatment of higher priority patients. Care should not be abandoned, spare any remaining time and resources after Immediate and Delayed patients have been treated.
STD Triage has been covered on CNN, in Wired, FastCompany, The Huffington Post, and many other news outlets.
Worried that you have a sexually transmitted disease (STD)? Embarrassed to bring it up with your partner or the doctor?
You are not alone. Every year more than 19 million new cases are diagnosed in the US.
The response will provide you with medical information as to what your problem could be, how it could be treated, and whether an in-person visit with a family doctor, dermatologist, pharmacy, or STD testing clinic is recommended.
The service does not replace a face-to-face visit to your doctor, and should be treated as a complement to an internet search. Even if the dermatologist recommends a face-to-face visit, our customer surveys show that the relief of knowing what the problem could be is worth the cost of using service.
No account is needed, no email or telephone number, just use the app and pay with your iTunes account and we will do the rest
- Medical information: Send in images and text on any skin condition anonymously. Within 24 hours one of our dermatologists will post a response specific to your skin problem.
- Intimate skin book: You can read about the most common intimate skin problems. Find out for yourself about your skin problems from a trusted source.
- Geo location, find your nearest STD clinic in our map function.

STD Triage is a medical information service. The medical information provided is based on the information at hand and should not be regarded as a definitive diagnosis of any kind, but merely as information and a complement to an initial internet search or other comparable investigation. Our physicians are specialists in dermatology and venereology. STD Triage is not a diagnostic service, but can be used for guidance on what can be done in the event of a visual problem. Our doctors and STD Triage cannot and do not replace a proper medical consultation.

“THE ORIGINAL AND STILL THE BEST” —EMS Magazine
The original EMS Field Guide® from Informed Publishing—the trusted leader in emergency reference information since 1986 —is now available as an Android Application.
Twenty-three years after publication, the EMS Field Guide remains the most widely-used reference in EMS history. Carried in the pockets, phones and emergency vehicles of millions of first responders, this is the guide EMS Magazine calls “the original and still the best.”
The EMS Field Guide app puts critical information at your fingertips with rich content, detailed illustrations and pioneering features. This app is available in two editions— Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic & Intermediate Life Support (BLS)—designed specifically to correspond with each tier of EMT certification and practice, so you know you have the right tool for your job.
The Advanced Life Support (ACLS) app equips the Paramedic or EMT-P to triage and address trauma. It provides fast, easy access to vital assessment information, medications, and drug doses; quick interpretation of 12-Lead EKGs; and the latest CPR and ACLS algorithms from the American Heart Association (AHA). The ACLS app is also suitable for Intermediates whose practice orders require a more detailed understanding of these topics.
NOTE: For issues related to problems downloading the app or with refunds please call 1-888-624-8014 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact us before leaving negative reviews.
This becomes especially important within developing countries such as South Africa wherein the healthy system is further strained by the growing burden of disease and increased trauma, and lacks the relevant and adequate human and technological capacity and support to effectively manage the environment.
TOMPSA has identified a critical need in this regard and is in process of developing an automated, multi-parameter diagnostic triage device and accompanying application to be used by healthcare workers. The triage device would improve triage accuracy and optimize and automate the triaging process reducing triage time and related requisite training.
Furthermore, it would capacitate healthcare workers in under resourced environments to do an effective triage assessment, as the device would facilitate an instant electronic record of triage and relay data to a centralized point in an emergency centre.
We would like to thank Michele Twomey and Gerco Brandwijk for making this app possible.
