Description/Abstract

The Modified Early Warning System is a paper based system used in general wards of hospitals to monitor patients health during the duration of the patient stay. Using this system, patient deterioration/improvement can rapidly be detected so as to assist and alert healthcare providers. In this paper we describe a simplified MEWS device which assists healthcare providers in assessing several of the patients vitals quantitatively, so as to allow the provider to focus on a qualitative assessment of the patient.
