Rapid response systems (RRSs) are somewhat effective at preventing cardiorespiratory arrest outside the intensive care unit, according to this AHRQ-funded systematic review published as part of a patient safety supplement in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The review also identifies barriers and facilitators to effective implementation of RRSs in different contexts.
