Triage system is a process that is critical to the effective management of modern emergency departments. The triage systems aim not only to provide a fair clinical evaluation for the sick, injured and poisoned children, but also to provide a good effective approach to the organization, monitoring and evaluation of emergency medical care in the pediatric emergency departments over the past 20 years in the world and in Europe, triage systems have been standardized in a number of countries and are making efforts to ensure sustainability of compulsory implementation. In addition, differences at international levels in triad systems, but limits capacities to benchmark standards. The purpose of this paper is to enable pediatric emergency pediatric healthcare professionals to quickly evaluate, monitor, treat, and transport medical care, and to understand, learn, and apply the newest guidelines of the triage system with priorities. The research of the paper aims to make pediatric emergent medical care professionals in hospital settings to do a fairly fast triage, reducing morbidity, invalidity and mortality in the pediatric emergency department at the hospital. Triage systems in our country at three levels of health care do not work, is a chaotic system because there are no clinical guidelines, algorithms important component should create mandatory triads in three health care providers, advancing, strengthening the triad system as an important component of health care. Education, training of professionals of health care professionals for the three levels of health care should be an obligatory component to increase the quality of emergency medical care in life-threatening children. It's time to develop and test a triad scheme that will be based on a triad system that will respond and adapt to the conditions of our health system.
