Initiation of the Failure to Rescue in the ICU Study

Through support from the Controlled Risk Insurance Company (CRICO) we are undertaking a review of cardiac arrests that occur in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). This review will allow for a better understanding of events that lead up to cardiac arrests in the ICU and help in the development of a process around preventing ICU cardiac arrest. Ultimately a comprehensive Trigger and Response system will be implemented with the aim of preventing ICU cardiac arrest.
