The investigators aim to collect detailed data on patients' vital signs, NEWSs, pain scores and PONV scores through electronic data records, where these values are automatically stored with mobile mobile smart devices used by nursing staff. The expected volume of the cohort is 50,000 patients and 300,000 recordings of vital signs.
In addition to the scores and vital signs, the registry will include patients' identification numbers (IDs), dates and times of the recordings, and ward numbers. With the IDs, 90-day mortality of the patients will be obtained from the national population register centre. All data will be handled in a pseudonymized form in a secure computer inside hospital, and approval to use the registry in study purposes will be obtained from the Ethics Committee of Tampere University Hospital.
