    Nice new development using technology...

    I wonder if this will become a standard triage procedure in mass casualty incidents -- placing the sensors on Pts as you move among them doing your RPM assessments... :smile:

    Yeah, I wondered about that as well. You certainly don't do chest compressions in most MCIs...
