Early Sepsis Screening

..."Clinical Bottom Line:
In this limited retrospective study, NEWS was more accurate than both SIRS and qSOFA for the early detection of severe sepsis and septic shock. This severity score is calculable at triage, improves in prediction with increasing illness severity, and may better allow for risk stratification, however until prospective performance of the score in the ED can be determined, SIRS remains the most sensitive algorithm for predicting patients at risk for severe sepsis and septic shock."
