ACLS (advanced cardiac life support) is a team based process for treating critically ill patients using extraordinary measures to include CPR, endotracheal intubation, and electrical cardioversion. It is utilized when life-threatening deterioration of a patient is observed, often in emergency rooms and critical care units. Generally, 4-5 team members comprise a rapid response “code” team with cross-trained skills and a designated leader.
Using the TeamSTEPPS approach described in your text, describe how you might promote performance improvement in a code team that :
a. has just been formed with newly trained people that have never actually treated patients as a team, and.
b. an experienced team that has worked together for a year.
