Rapid response with
Early Warning Scoring

main infographic EWS 1

Can your general ward react quickly to an emergency?

The signs of a patient’s clinical instability typically occur six to eight hours before an adverse event.

Large patient volumes and limited staffing can make it hard for care providers to know which patients to watch more closely.


Early intervention puts time on your side. With IntelliVue Guardian Solution, Early Warning Scoring (EWS) can help you spot patient deterioration quickly and send proper notification to Rapid Response Teams.¹

Respond in time to help

When patients experience difficulties outside of the ICU, the call for intervention can sometimes come too late to help. But fortunately, there is a way to predict certain critical events on the General Floor before they happen. Early Warning Scoring (EWS) helps you spot signs of deterioration for early intervention. Learn how EWS can help identify critical events on the General Floor.

Philips helped the Catharina Hospital Eindhoven to increase efficiencies and improve their quality of care by implementing EWS. Watch the video to hear their story.

The power of EWS across your organization

EWS can support fast results and knowledge sharing as well as keep doctors, nurses, and staff connected. So everyone can focus on providing exceptional care to the one person who matters most: the patient.
