To ensure proper documentation of victims as a prelude to information management and effective triage and treatment, an appropriate and applicable medical record is required in a disaster.

After identification of organizations responsible for collecting and organizing the information of victims worldwide and collection of their experiences and required data from literature, the essential parameters for the medical record in disaster was extracted from American and European models.
