In-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) is all too common and often fatal. Survival rates for these events can be as low as 24.8% according to the American Heart Association.
When an event like this occurs, it’s essential for clinical staff to act fast and provide care as quickly as possible. Response times can literally mean the difference between life and death to a heart code patient.
Current workflows for handling a cardiac event can be convoluted and inefficient. That’s where clinical communication and collaboration solutions come to the rescue. With better CC&C, clinicians can quickly and effectively circle the code team and start the appropriate measures. See how the whole process can be improved in the infographic below:
