Resumo: INTRODUCTION. Adult patients often exhibit physiological deterioration hours before cardiopulmonary arrest. As a result, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) recommended that hospitals implement rapid response teams (RRT) as 1 of 6 strategies to result preventable in-hospital deaths. OBJECTIVE. To determine the effect of a rapid response team on the rate of in-hospital cardiac arrests, total and unplanned intensive care unit admissions, and ICU and hospital mortality before and after implementation of a rapid response team. METHODS. Prospective controlled cohort before RRT (August/2007 - April/2008) and after RRT (May/2008 - February/2009) in a general ICU (31 beds). Standard criteria were used to activate the RRT and included acute changes in the patient´s mental status, respiratory rate, heart rate, oxygenation, or blood pressure and hypoxia, chest pain, or worry from clinical staff. We measured: admitting diagnosis, criteria to activate the RRT and interventions. RESULTS. Before RRT 610 patients were admitted in the ICU and 24% from ward. The most common reasons for admission at ICU were ventilatory dysfunction (36%), shock (19%), cardiac changes (11%) and acute neurological changes (11%). After RRT were a total the 276 activations. The most common reasons for RRT activation were ventilator dysfunction (39%), cardiac changes (22%) and acute neurological changes (16%). 22% were transferred to ICU and the main reasons were cardiac changes (39%), ventilatory dysfunction (36%) and acute neurological changes (16%). In 59% was made a respiratory intervention and in 44% a hemodynamic intervention. The patients admitted before TRR were older (69±15 vs. 75±15, p=0,012). After RRT implementation, mean in-hospital cardiac arrests decrease (14 vs. 8, p=0,048). The ICU mortality (23% vs. 27%, p=0,58) and hospital mortality (62% vs. 61%, p=0.87) did not differ between before and after RRT. CONCLUSIONS. The RRT implementation was associated with decreases in rates of in-hospital cardiac arrest, but was not associated with reductions in hospital or ICU mortality. REFERENCE: 1.
