Abstract:   (693 Views)
Background: In many hospitals, the rapid response team (RRT) is specialized in
monitoring critical symptoms and timely intervention. The purpose of this study is
to investigate the impact of RRT implantation (including reducing cardiorespiratory
resuscitation and intubation rate) in adult patients admitted to Namazi Hospital in
Shiraz.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in Shiraz Namazi Hospital on
15,448 patients over 18 years of age hospitalized in the emergency room and selected internal wards from April 2019 to January 2022. This study was divided into
three periods. The trend of clinical outcomes (cardio-respiratory resuscitation and
intubation) in the first and third periods (before and after the RRT implementation)
was analyzed using Joinpoint Regression analysis.
Results: The mean monthly cardiorespiratory resuscitation showed a significant decrease (p-value < 0.001) in the third period in the emergency department. Also, the
mean intubation rate decreased by 10 units (p-value: 0.1). According to the results
of Joinpoint Regression Analysis, the monthly percentage changes (MPC) of cardiorespiratory resuscitation in the emergency department before the establishment of
RRT had a positive upward slope of 7.4%, while after the implementation of RRT,
MPC was 2.9% with a negative slope.
Conclusion: Implementing the rapid response team can reduce cardiorespiratory
resuscitation and intubation rate by screening at-risk patients with warning signs,
using trained staff and early intervention, and indirectly reducing the complications
caused by cardiac arrest.
