Abstract:

Mass casualty
incidents (MCI) are highly dynamic situations in which limited available
resources need to be quickly and efficiently allocated. In this paper, we suggest
considerable extensions to an allocation method that we presented in earlier work.
The extensions address two major challenges: First, the need to balance
real-world resource usage and second, the need to adapt to changing situations.
Additionally, a theoretical evaluation of the efficiency of the suggested
approach is described.
