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. Â© 2012 ISCRAM.
