The emergency department is one of the key sector hospital administration should look over very seriously.  In today’s time increase in serious health issues, the demand for emergency department triage in hospitals has been increased which prioritizes the treatment considering the severity of the patient. So, due to the increased need for triage, this has been a critically important part of the emergency department. The distorts and nurses in the triage area needs to be well prepared for high-risk situations and should be promptly experienced to handle critical situations.

Triage is the function of the emergency department where treatment is done based on clinical urgency. Medical triage is done in critical situations when things are to prioritize and give extreme attention. According to the severity of the treatment or aid is provided to the patients. Patient triages are generally done in situations of war, natural calamity like flood, earthquake, fire, cyclone, disasters, etc. In all these situations the patients are treated according to the seriousness of their condition. In this people are sorted into categories and then send for treatment considering the emergency. This categorization is done based on disease severity which decides the location of treatment 

 

Four five-level triage systems are internationally popular for their best triage systems which are Australasian Triage Scale (ATS), Manchester Triage System (MTS), Canadian Triage and Acuity Scale (CTAS), and Emergency Severity Index (ESI). 

Triages are of various types of triages such as military triage, ICU triage, ED triage, disaster triage, and telephone triage. There is a huge difference between Emergency Department triage and Disaster triage. These two purposely need to be assessed according to the situation. The ED triage is used in case of the critical situation of the patient and in the Disaster triage the priority is given to the patients according to the limited resources. The ED triage uses 5 level scale through Disaster triage uses a 3 to 4 level scale.
