The NEWS Wales score has now come to the Play Store!
The app is intended to aid clinicians in calculating the risk of patient deterioration and the likelihood of sepsis as an underlying cause.
It will enable you to:
Calculate levels of risk
Link with the SIRS criteria for sepsis
Be aware of the need for earlier action
It is currently being used by organisations throughout NHS Wales and is based on the NHS Early Warning Score and the Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines. It is not intended as a substitute for full clinical judgement and diagnostic procedure.
