Abstract

During the last decade, obstetric triage has been one of the latest obstetric services to emerge. Obstetric triage is defined as a specialty area/unit within obstetrics with multifunctional aspects. Obstetric triage is primarily a screening platform for labor evaluation. However, in many settings, it is used to manage early, mid, and late pregnancy complications as well as emergent obstetric conditions. Obstetric triage units are often the gatekeeper for initial assessment of obstetric presenting complaints. The finite resources of the Emergency Department emphasize the need for timely and accurate triage decisions that ultimately underpin optimal health service delivery.
