Best way to Triage

The reason I bought this item is because, I believe the Mammut Pulse Barryvox is the best way tho Triage a multiple barial patient scenario. I'm a Paramedic! Why dig a patient out of a avalanche if there already dead. Mark and move onto the next victim. Triaging patients based on depeth is a thing of the past.

The only issue with this approach is that you could be buried and unconscious or if the motion sensor is not tuned enough for little movement accompanied with being buried in snow like cement you could be passed over when you are buried and alive.

This is definitely very controversial. What if the beacon is off the victim's chest and not reading movement/pulse. Also there are lots of other models out there and this beacon won't register a pulse with other models. Definitely an interesting function for this beacon.
