    Abstract

    Introduction: Pre-hospital emergency services need appropriate means to identify the actual critical necessities of internalpatients. The purpose of this study is to assess the physiological efficiency scoring system in order to manage the transference of internal patients across Iran. Methods: This paper is a cross sectional study. The research community is the patients transferred by pre-hospital emergency of Tehran hospital. Physiological scoring system is used as the data collection device. Data were analyzed by the use of descriptive and analytical census (Pearson correlation coefficient) and by SPSS19 software. Findings: The median physiological scores of the research subjects equals to 1.54 ± 2.38. More than half of patients, who were sent to hospital, need no emergency treatment, besides there were a meaningful statistical relationship between the physiological scores and number of hospitalized patients. Conclusion: The use of physiological scoring system seems to be a suitable method to make decision about whether to transfer an internal patient or not. But extensive studies in this area are essential in order to make a definitive statement about the usage of these measurements
