The research compared 119 transport chart with emergency medical recording.
RESULTS:

Finding from the crosstabulation analysis between 119 transport chart and emergency medical record reveal that 93 cases were overstimated, and 23 cases were understimated in mental status evaluation by 119 rescuer. Adequate prehospital treatment were 151 cases.
CONCLUSION:
The property of mental status evaluation by 119 rescuer was nearly correct, but the triage and management were not.
