The aim of this paper is to review the art and science underpinning the application of effective triage. The paper also attempts to cut through the fog of confusion surrounding the topic and to point a way towards a generally-agreed unified approach. Triage needs to be understood in the context of the environment in which it is applied, and the paper deals with this in some detail.
