Objective: Blue code systems (BCS) are communication systems that ensure the most rapid and effective resuscitation when a patient is in respiratory or cardiac arrest. A hospital employee faced with the situation of a cardiopulmonary arrest (CPA) starts the system by dialing 6666 from any phone in the hospital. We created a five-person team that includes a doctor, nurse, anesthesia technician, stretcher officer and security guard. The purpose of this study is to share our experiences in initiating the use of the BCS in our hospital.
