This analysis of a training program in hospital-based identification of clinical deterioration and resuscitation found that most cardiopulmonary arrest events can be reliably classified by the study team's novel taxonomy into 1 of 12 clinical entities. The authors suggest that using this taxonomy can better elucidate the effects of interventions to improve outcomes of cardiopulmonary arrest in inpatient settings.
