The TST is designed to be quick, simple and effective at prioritising large numbers of casualties rapidly with a focus on immediately providing lifesaving interventions (LSI). These LSI include control of severe bleeding and opening of the airway, which are known to be the key requirements to maximise patient survival in the early stages of injury. Whilst principally designed for events where casualty numbers far outweigh the availability of responders it is equally effective at any multiple patient event.
