Abstract

An audit examined the epidemiology of in-hospital cardiac arrests 5 years after a rapid response system was introduced, exploring the frequency of arrests in monitored and unmonitored areas. Details of the initial cardiac rhythm and what proportion of events were preceded by a medical emergency team call were also assessed.
