Abstract

 Dear Editor: We read with great interest the recent manuscript by Mostafa Alavi-Moghaddam et al. (1) on “Application of Queuing Analytic Theory to Decrease Waiting Times in EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT: Does it Make Sense?” published in the Archives of Trauma Research. In this article, the authors described a discrete events SIMULATION (DES) model deployed on the ARENA SIMULATION software to model the processes in an EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT (ED). The SIMULATION model was based on empirical data of actual ED operations for The Imam Hosein Hospital located in Tehran, Iran, with annual input of approximately 50, 000 patients, 24 general emergency beds and 14 trauma emergency beds.
