Pediatric Modified Early Warning Score (MEWS) Calculator







F C


*Please note that the actual criteria and thresholds for the Pediatric MEWS score may vary based on clinical
guidelines and the hospital's protocols. Generally, a higher MEWS score indicates a higher level of clinical
concern and suggests that the patient may be at increased risk of clinical deterioration or
developing serious illness. Below is a generalized interpretation of the Pediatric MEWS scores

Pediatric MEWS Interpretation:

MEWS Score 0-1:
This score range usually indicates that the patient's vital signs and clinical observations are within normal limits or only slightly abnormal. It suggests that the patient's condition is stable, and there is a lower risk of clinical deterioration at the moment.

MEWS Score 2-4:
A score in this range suggests that there are some abnormalities in the patient's vital signs and clinical parameters. It may indicate mild to moderate distress, and healthcare professionals should closely monitor the patient's condition for any signs of worsening.

MEWS Score 5-6:
Scores in this range indicate significant abnormalities in the patient's vital signs and clinical observations. It signals an increased risk of clinical deterioration and requires close monitoring and prompt medical attention.

MEWS Score 7 or higher:
A score of 7 or higher signifies a severe deviation from normal vital signs and clinical parameters. This score indicates a high risk of clinical deterioration, and immediate medical intervention is likely required. The patient should be closely monitored, and appropriate interventions should be initiated promptly.
