RESULTS: During calendar year 2014, there were fifty eight Code Critical Airways called at Medstar Washington Hospital Center. Of those 58 patients, forty eight were discharged alive. One patient’s disposition is unknown. Of the nine patients that did not survive to discharge, three died during the Code Critical Airway. Of those 3 patients that died, two were Code Blue’s (cardiac arrest occurred prior to the Code Critical Airway call) in progress and it was determined that establishing an adequate airway did not contribute to their death. Also, of the fifty eight patients, none were previously known to have a difficult airway. From analysis of past CA’s, we have mandated that “difficult airway” be entered as part of the patient’s electronic medical record. This electronic visual alert affords practitioners and providers the benefit of anticipating a difficult intubation where the airway team can be called proactively and be available for airway management. In the past six years we have seen a decrease the mortality rate of code airway patients.
