Abstract: The transfer of the triage from the field to the emergency department appears as a necessity to compensate the imbalance between available resources at the moment of patient arrival to the ED and the patients needs at the same moment. The result is to "filter" the patients  trough a system to identify these who require immediate attention and high level of the medical effort; for all the rest of cases it will exist a stratification in time and resources management for each patient. The permanent changes of the acuity scales in triage lead to a better repartition of the resources and this situation leads its self to a continuous triage shifts changes.
