Özet

Objectives: Triage has evolved as an effective method of separating patients who require immediate medical attention from patients with non-urgent problems. The aim of this study was to assess the agreement between paramedics and emergency residents about triage decisions using the 3-level triage (3L) system and the 5-level (5L) Australian triage scale in real time.
