In the post period, the reasons for MET calls included worsening respiratory function (30%); acute respiratory distress (10%); a seizure or fitting (20%); suspected cardiac pain (10%); and alteration in vital signs indicating clinical deterioration(30%).There were 140 Code Blue calls pre EARLY SAVE and 60 post, mainly for cardiac or respiratory arrest..
