As a Rapid Response or Medical Emergency Team member, would you please answer the following:
a. how many beds does your institution have?
b. what, if any equipment do you take along to a response, i.e. no equipment, cardiac monitor only, select meds, entire crash cart?
c. Have you come upon a situtation in which an RRT was called but deteriorated to a PNB (code) situtation before or upon your arrival? Can you offer details of any specifics about the management in this situation?
Thanks for your input!
