Reviews

“Textbook of Rapid Response Systems: Concepts and Implementation, Second Edition is a focused and concise update to the best evidence and expert opinion on the implementation and evaluation of the service. This book will serve as an accessible and effective reference guide for those clinicians and administrators wanting to fine-tune their existing RRSs as well as for those health systems contemplating starting the service.” (Ritesh Maharaj, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 126 (6), June, 2018)

“This is the second edition of a multiauthored book describing the theory and organization of teams designed to identify patients developing critical illness outside the intensive care unit. … Clinical leadership in hospitals considering or featuring a Rapid Response System are an appropriate audience for this work, along with their administrative partners. … This update reflects studies in literature produced since the first edition was published in 2011.” (David J. Dries, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2017)
