Professionalisation of emergency medicine and triage before most of emergency consultations led to a major reduction in exposure of general practitionners (GP) to vital emergencies, which participates in reduction of their aptitudes to manage such emergencies. The risk for a GP to face a vital emergency is weak nowaday, but did not totaly disappear. Therefore, it seems important for the GPs to maintain the skills required to manage these emergencies properly. These skills would be capacity in recognizing symptoms and signs of alarm (red flags), applying life support, and sorting the patients correctly. These skills will be all the more important in the future, while the role of the GP could be reinforced in response to requirement of increased efficiency.
