Abstract

Overall, the future emergency departments in Denmark serve as a single portal of entry for all acute patients. At the same time an expansion of prehospital diagnosing and triage will take place. In patients suspected of life-threatening cardiac conditions with specialized treatment requirements where the time factor is important, the prehospital triage will be important to identify patients who should be transferred directly to a cardiac care unit to reduce prehospital and in-hospital delays of treatment.
