Abstract

• NEWS is routinely used to identify hospital patients at risk of deterioration. • Near patient testing of biochemical variables at hospital admission is widespread. • Combining NEWS with near patient testing might improve risk assessment. • NEWS was associated with death or critical care admission. • NEWS and near patient testing was worse at predicting outcome than NEWS alone.
