Triage (play /ˈtrɑːʒ/) is the process of determining the priority of patients’ treatments based on the severity of their condition.


If you are ever in a hospital waiting room, you will often see the word triage followed by the more commonly applied definition: “The Worst Are First.”

In a previous post, it was specified the amount of time a person can go without things essential to survival.


You can live 3 months without love, 3 weeks without food, 3 days without water, 3 hours without shelter, 3 minutes without air and only 3 seconds without using your head.


We can list these essential items by order of priority:

  1. Using Your Head
  2. Air
  3. Shelter
  4. Water
  5. Food
  6. Love
