Used by Medical Professionals during Mass Casualty Incidents (MCI), these time-saving triage tags will save lives. These new Biological/Chemcial emergency tools have been specially developed to meet the changing needs of modern Emergency Responders. Using just one triage tag you will be able to handle MCIs ranging from automobile to aircraft accidents involving several people, to large-scale terrorism incidents that may involve HAZMAT or a weapon of mass destruction.
Each Triage tag is construced of high-density water resistant synthetic paper and is printed using a special thermal printing process, just like its sister product the MT-137. Using just the front-side, a First-Responder can quickly note a triage patient's status and then fill in additional patient assessment or tracking information as time permits. The backside of the tag can also be used to add any extra informational notes necessary to the patient's care. And to make tracking and treatment as easy as possible each section of the tag has a barcode that can be easily scanned.
Materials used in the manufacture of MetTag Triage Tags are deemed:
All tags have a useful top portion that can mark a patient's original location (required for MCIs involving aircraft, etc.) and even be marked to track any personal articles of a patient and/or severed body parts. Several different tear-off tabs can be used by either an Incident Commander or Triage Unit Leader in monitoring an individual patient's progress from the scene of the incident to whatever facility they were sent to.
The tags also have information for the receiving hospital or critical care facility to make a permanent record of the patient's personal information, medical history, vital signs, and intial triage status. A strip is also provided for the patient to keep with them to help them track down their personal property or to be used if for any reason a First Responder is injured while assisting a patient: (First Responders can fill in their medical history, name, and/or contact information and wear a CB-100 Tag themselves when they enter a Mass Casuality Incident (MCI)).
The bottom portion of the MetTag CB-100 uses the medically standardized color code system on individual tear-offs to mark the triage status of the patient. The tag has another area just above these tear-offs to mark whether or not the victim's/patient's triage status has changed at all during the course of an MCI. The CB-100 Biological/Chemical Emergency Triage Tag can be used with START method or even the A-E Triage System (specifically designed to handle HAZMAT and terrorist incidents).
The MetTag CB-100 was used in every U.S. Olympic Games since 1980.
