Building a better 'Code Blue': Study offers clues to survival
from Michigan Medicine
Each July brings new residents to the inpatient wards of major teaching hospitals across the United States. Among the many new responsibilities these young doctors will take on, one of the oldest and most critical will be their role on Code Blue teams — groups of caregivers who respond to cardiac arrests. About 200,000 cardiac arrests happen each year in U.S. hospitals. Nearly 80 percent of patients do not survive.
