The use of patient monitoring systems to improve sepsis recognition and outcomes: a systematic review.
This systematic review’s aim was to determine the impact of automated patient monitoring systems (PMSs) on sepsis recognition and outcomes. The review was conducted using articles published from 2008 through 2018. Nineteen articles were identified for inclusion with 4 systematic reviews and 15 individual studies. Study results for outcome measures were mixed, with more than half the studies showing a significant improvement in at least one outcome measure (eg mortality, intensive care unit length of stay, ICU transfer). Evidence for process measure improvement was of moderate strength across multiple hospital units.
