ABSTRACT

We sought to evaluate the effect of the performance of the Code-Blue Team on survival of patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest. This study was performed as a retrospective analysis of a detailed cardiac arrest registry containing prospectively collected data during two years (from January 2010 to December 2011). We compared Code-Blue Team performance and patient survival in 2011 (Education Group) with those in 2010 (Pre-education Group). A total of 531 cases, including 289 cases in the Pre-education group, were included in the study. Time to arrest recognition (9.9±8.2 vs 11.0±8.1 minute), time to scene arrival (4.1±2.6 vs 12.4±10.3 minute), recognition to chest compression (15.6±7.2 vs 20.6±10.6 minute) were much shorter in the Education group than in the Pre-education group (all p<0.05). Although the Code-Blue team showed a better performance, the survival rate of in-hospital cardiac arrest was not influenced by the performance of the Code-Blue team.
