NEWS and AKI
 Some of the concerns about the National Early Warning Score has been around the fact that there is no score for urine output. We have contacted the National Acute Kidney Injury group regarding the position about the National Early Warning Score and their stament is as follows:

"The Acute Kidney Injury group would like to endorse the National Early Warning Score but would like to state that urine output is a sensitive issue, it is important that there is accurate recording of fluid balance but there should be avoidance of unnecessary urinary catheterisation"




NEWS discussion

Concerns about the NEWS have been related to the sensitivities of the triggers, particularly related to the scoring of when patient is on supplemental oxygen.
We would like to hear from you how you are approaching the implementation of the National Early Warning Score and we are opening a discussion forum for it. Please send any query or comments you wish, particularly anything that you have found useful to help the implementation of the National Early Warning Score. There is also a NEWS chart gallery for you to share your NEWS charts with colleagues.

Thank you.
