Triage is critical important for emergency medicine. It refers to prioritize medical care to patients according to the severity of their condition. Besides, the medical resource is not always sufficient in an emergency department due to the crowding and staff burnout at times.
A good triage system should help emergency departments to organize and manage the flow of patients, which is becoming more and more important as the number of patients continues to increase. In addition, a good triage system must be able to distinguish patients who need rapid assessment and management from patients who can wait safely.
A number of such systems have been developed and applied in use in clinics over the years. In order to summarize the development of triage systems in recent years, we have decided to launch a BMC Emergency Medicine collection “Triage system in emergency medicine”.
We invited submissions from all aspects of this developing field including, but not limited to:
- New triage scale,
- Applications of triage systems in clinics,
- AI in triage system,
- Strategies for improving the triage system stratification,
- ongoing crowding of emergency department and solution, etc.
- development and evaluation of triage systems for mass casualty incidents.
The collection is closed.
