This systematic review was unable to estimate the incidence and preventability rate of adverse events that precipitate intensive care unit admission due to study heterogeneity. The authors discuss the recommended prevention strategies, including rapid response systems, but also raise concerns about the limited evidence surrounding these strategies.
