Abstract

In this chapter, a triage system using RFID and mobile devices with a wireless network is proposed, and its advantages are verified through an experiment assuming an incident of massive injured people. Triage is a procedure used by emergency personnel to ration limited medical resources to massive injured people, in which triage tags are used to (1) classify and transport the injured people effectively and (2) obtain the information about the state and the scale of the casualty incident to publish to the masses or to utilize for decision making such as medical resource procurements. Figure 18.1 is a picture of a triage tag. So far, triage is operated manually using paper triage tags, tallies, and radiophones. However, manually obtaining the information about the state and the scale of the casualty incident to publish to the masses or to utilize for decision making such as medical resource procurements leads to failure, inaccuracy, and delay in the information transmission while emergency personnel have priority over treatments for injuries, and causes inefficiency in classification and transport of the injured people effectively, which is the essential goal of emergency medical services. In this chapter, we propose a triage system in which RFID tags, which are silicon chips with their IDs, radio frequency functions, and some additional logic and memory [1,2], are attached to triage tags. Most of the RFID tags are passive, which means the power is supplied through radio frequency communication from external readers. Employed RFID tags in this work are passive and have 1 kb of rewritable memories. Figure 18.2 is a picture of an RFID tag we employed. Embedding an RFID tag to a triage tag has the following advantages
