ELGUEA ECHAVARRIA, Pedro Alejandro et al. Effectiveness of the rapid response team at the Hospital Angeles Pedregal. Acta méd. Grupo Ángeles [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.3, pp.181-188. ISSN 1870-7203.

A rapid response team (RRT) has the function to attend to the assessment of the hospitalized patient that presents clinical deterioration signs, this is in order to avoid further, preventable critical events and so reduce in hospital morbidity and mortality. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the effectiveness of the RRT in Hospital Ángeles Pedregal. For this, we performed an observational, retrospective and transversal study from the period of February 1 2014 to June 30 2015. We analized the survival of the patients admitted to the ICU comparing a group of patients that were evaluated for a RRT against a group that were not evaluated. We identified better survival in patients who received a RRT evaluation (37.7 versus 21.2% respectively) and this was independent of the severity of illness. Thus we conclude that the RRT works with effectiveness making possible an early detection of the patient with clinical deterioration, achieving a timely admission of the patient to Intensive Care Unit and a better survival.
