Abstract
Purpose
The purpose of this study is to investigate the characteristics and appropriateness of the Korean-type severity classification by ambulance based on the medical records of 43,561 emergency patients who were brought to the emergency medical center via ambulance between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2017.
Methods
This study analyzed the classification characteristics of the Korean severity classification tool by applying them to emergency patients who visited the emergency medical center.
Results
As a result of the study first, among the categories of home hospitals according to the results of visits, “other,” “low consciousness,” and “dyspnea” in the order of 129 ambulances were statistically significantly higher. In the order of “low consciousness” and “trauma,” the “trauma” category was 5.3% higher than that of 129 ambulances.
Conclusion
Among the classification items, “others,” “low consciousness,” and “dyspnea” were significantly higher in the group of patients who boarded 129 ambulances, and “others,” “low consciousness,” and “traumatic” were significantly higher in the 119 ambulances.
