Abstract

This chapter proposes a triage system using radio-frequency identification (RFID) and wireless systems that can be used to manage disaster situations. Triage is a procedure used by emergency personnel to manage limited medical resources to benefit a large number of injured people using triage tags. The proposed system of using RFID triage tags and wireless sensors has many advantages. Effectiveness of the proposed system is evaluated through an assumed situation/experiment involving a complex car crash of five cars and more than eighty injured people. The comparative results show significant improvement. The system can be applied to other disaster situations such as earthquakes, storms, or floods.
