Abstract

Time and again, hospital code teams are dispatched to a patient in cardiac arrest only to find their resuscitative efforts unsuccessful. Are there earlier interventions that may have saved the patient? Do any warning signs exist before the patient actually goes into a full code or cardiac arrest event? The answer is a repeated yes, and the solution is a rapid response team.
