Triage and Trauma Center


Greetings friends,

I wonder if someone could guide me to what would be the Greek counterparts to the medical terms--

Triage=the assignment of degrees of urgency to wounds or illnesses to decide the order of treatment of a large number of patients or casualties.

and Trauma Center = A trauma center is an area of a hospital that's equipped to treat the most high-risk of injuries — think gunshot wounds, serious car crash injuries, and major burns. ... Trauma centers offer more extensive care than emergency departments, and the difference between a trauma center and emergency room can be life and death. The ability for doctors to work on several injuries at the same time.

In the United States only certain hospitals have Trauma Centers and they are usually clearly marked in the signage.
Thank you.

triage = διαλογή (ασθενών)

trauma center = τραυματολογικό κέντρο/τμήμα

Παίζει πια και ο νεολογισμός τραυματιολόγος / τραυματιολογία / τραυματιολογικό κέντρο (τα πρώτα δύο περιλαμβάνονται σε Χρηστικό και ΜΗΛΝΕΓ). Όπως και το Κέντρο Τραύματος.
