Triage is the process of quickly examining sick or injured people, the sorting of patients in emergency room according to the urgency of their need for care. Three categories of victim classified Red/Immediate means a patient whose life is in immediate danger and requires immediate treatment. Yellow/delayed means a patient whose life is not in immediate danger, Surgical or medical intervention is required within 2–4 hours. Green/Minimal Means a patient with minor injuries who will eventually require treatment, Minor fractures or lacerations are commonly seen in this group. Black/Expectant Means a patient who is either dead or has extensive injury and cannot be saved with the limited resources available.
