Assessment of CPR for Patients Upshot and their Predictors: A Code Blue Team Approach
Surinder Singh, Ajai Vikram Singh
Despite important advances, sudden cardiac arrest continues to be a leading cause of death worldwide. Research on resuscitation has considerably increased; guidelines for cardiac resuscitation have been implemented on an international level and have undergone substantial changes. The cardiac arrest team popularly known code blue team for in- hospital resuscitation has become a standard for many medical centres worldwide. Despite this, the reported survival rates vary significantly with the centre, patients, and event characteristics. It is essential that cardio pulmonary arrest to be recognized immediately and CPR started without delay to prevent adverse outcomes. Keeping all these facts in mind we planned a study on patients with cardiac arrest that would provide us predictors of favourable outcomes in patients in our institute and an insight into our healthcare system.
