Abstract

Emergency medical treatment in Japan is subject to jurisdiction by the Fire Department. Triage, by definition, is a dynamic process, as the patient's status can change rapidly. Triage is very important for Japan, where emergency patients are on the rise. The role of triage nurse is also important. That will improve the life-saving rate of emergency patients and improve the reversion to society.
