Rapid Rescue (ACLS) Team
Current research supports the fact that early recognition of vital sign deterioration provides the opportunity for early intervention and subsequent management of all medical emergencies. Rapid response teams are implemented to address the problems of managing deterioration general medical and surgical patients and outside patients where an emergency ensues. These RRT’s are alerted when there is a clinical deterioration in in-house patients and patients’ calling on for an emergency.
We understand that the 1st hour is very important at the time of any medical emergency including stroke or road accident. We have a designated group of healthcare clinicians who can be assembled quickly to deliver Advanced Care (ACLS or PALS) assessment and treatment expertise in response to the perceived or potential clinical deterioration of a patient.
Our rapid rescue team consists of a Physician, anaesthesiologist, intensivist, tele-health provider, emergency care nurse, IV therapy for strokes, surgical management team, pharmacists, respiratory therapists etc. Hence, Center of diabetes and Allied Sciences (CDAS) has developed a Rapid Rescue Team which has an objective of reaching out the patient suffering at least possible time & delivering the live saving first aid services right at the spot, saving the life of a non-ICU patient inside the hospital when such pre-determined ranges for physiologic signs and symptoms are breached.
