Abstract
Changes in patient condition into critical condition characterized by hemodynamic changes in several indicators. Early recognition to such changes becomes nurse's responsibility, it requires a special clue or instrument to assess the changes in patient's condition. Modified Early Warning System (MEWS) is one method to assess changes in the patient's condition through some hemodynamic indicators including temperature, blood pressure, pulse, respiratory rate, and level of consciousness. Through this systematic review, researchers will assess the effectiveness of the Modified Early Warning System (MEWS) as a means of detecting changes in the patient's condition. Methods: Search of journal articles was used PECOT framework article in database; Ebscho, Science Direct, Elsevier, Sage Journals, Scopus, ProQuest, and Pub Med with limitations of publication time is in the last 10 years (2007-2017). There was 15 International journals and researchers conducted review to all of those journals. Results: Overall, those journal mentioned that the Modified Early Warning System (MEWS) was able to be applied in early detection of changes in patient's condition. Conclusion: These systematic review strongly recommend the use of the Modified Early Warning System (MEWS) as a tool to detect changes in the patient's condition.
