Triage Equipment: Tags, Tape & More
Emergency scenes with many injured victims can quickly become chaotic, yet identifying patients most in need of care is critical. Our full range of triage equipment helps you classify injuries so that additional responders can spot priority cases at a glance.
Triage tape in bright, known colors is the simplest way to convey urgency. Non-adhesive tapes tie easily around a patient's arm or leg or or if you need something sticky, use our color-coded DUCtape. In addition to plain red, yellow, green and black tape, we have rolls with corresponding writing to communicate immediate, delayed, minor and deceased situations. There's also tape for designating staging, triage and information areas.
After locating a patient, responders need additional information that disaster triage tags provide. Similarly color-coded for priority, tags allow triage workers to indicate the patient's condition, including vital signs, injury details and contamination status. The tag numbering and barcodes aid record keeping, while string ties allow easy patient attachment and handy wristbands on pediatric triage tags help keep young ones' identification in place.
