Improving early detection and survival outcomes
Over 37,000 lives are claimed by sepsis in the UK each year. If the infection is not treated quickly, it can progress to a state of severe sepsis resulting in multi-organ failure, septic shock, and ultimately death. Aside from the significant clinical dangers to patients, sepsis also costs the NHS ВЈ2.5 billion every year.
Real-time, customizable, intuitive technology can play a significant role in supporting clinicians to identify and manage patients with sepsis.
Our ThinkVitals easy-to-use mobile application, which is designed to automate the clinical calculations behind a patient’s vital signs using NEWS2 scores, includes a specific Sepsis Indicator to alert doctors and nurses to any patient who may be developing sepsis.
It works by notifying clinical staff in real-time, if any two of the SIRS 5 indicators are outside their predetermined range, enabling healthcare providers to.
- Identify causes of severe sepsis and take immediate and appropriate action
- Empower staff to help them make faster decisions that help to save lives and improve patient care
- Improve intervention rates through faster identification
