Warhammer 40k Imperial Guard Triage Chart by Light-Tricks Warhammer 40k Imperial Guard Triage Chart by Light-Tricks
This is the companion poster to the first document, and is a flow chart for prioritisation procedue, i.e. triage. There are many such real-life charts in existence, the best (in my opinion) is the SMART one produced by TSG and utilised by the British military (the one I am most familiar with), as well as various Police, Fire, Ambulance and other emergency services across the world. However, whilst their chart is neat, simple and tidy, that didn't seem to fit the bureaucratic mess of the 41st millenium. So, I went for a slightly older, somewhat abtuse system that was also easier to produce with my limited graphical technology at present - had I been at my own PC I could have easily replicated the SMART system in seconds. Real-life nicely mirrored the anachronistic, archaic tech of the dark future ;)

A must for all Imperial medical personnel, from medics and nursing staff to the Chirurgeon-General.

It's essentially the same as the ATLS, but as I said in the description is based more specifically on the SMART triage system :)

FYI - the Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer replaces the "Shock" section of the first aid manual with"Cowardice" and suggest the suppository application of a combat boot.

In the proper version, Breathing and Head Trauma, can't repeat the other ones here :P It's now been replaced by MARCH in most circles.

For clarification for anyone else bemused by acronyms and what not-
R - Responsiveness
B - Bleeding
B - Burns
S - Shock
F - Fractures
B - Breathing
H - Head trauma

M - Massive Bleeding
A - Airway
R - Respirations
C - Circulation
H - Head

H-Head Truama

Absolutely love it-fits the Guard perfectly, particularly the method for determining if the patient is in shock! Reminds me of the Infantryman's Uplifting Primer and its advise to use a litany or prayer for just about every action: "If you are bleeding remember to recite the Litany of Purity to ensure your body remains clean".

Thank you :) That's what I was going for but trying to balance that with a bit more practicality - my other documents equate recovery of equipment as being about as important as saving Guardsmen :P I had also menat to put on this a piece at the top "Greater rank always equals greater priority of aid - always attend to Officers first"

I'd think it'd be a matter of course, more a result of the fact that officers would be treated separately, by more experienced doctors... they don't need to make an explicit order on the triage sheet, because: *A* they aren't going to be in the same category, and, at least the senior officers won't be subject to 'triage' per-se.

:D Well a Guardsman is less valuable then his lasgun.....

That would be excellent for this chart, along with any advice that falls just short of having the average trooper hurl themselves in front of officers, Commissars and Tech-Priests to save them.

Well. There is seemingly as many lasguns as it is guardsmen. Pretty cheap weaponry.

BaseDeltaZero Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2013  Student Digital Artist
My theory on the subject is that no, a guardsman is not actually 'less valuable than his lasgun'. The Imperium just really, really, doesn't give a shit about 'peasants' and are terrible at analytics, or considering any sort of indirect cost, and don't realize that actually, standard guard training, to say nothing of housing, food, etc, is a *lot* more expensive than the guns that they can make by the thousand pretty much anywhere. They don't really go to great effort to get retrieve them, after all.

Also, they have such a preoccupation with procedure, proper ritual, and obedience, that something like losing/damaging a lasgun (the latter being an impressive feat, granted) is considered an act of *defiance*, in that they were given it by the Imperium, and no longer have it, so therefore they must be punished for 'rejecting' what they were given...
