Summary of "Code blue pit crew model: A novel approach to in-hospital cardiac arrest resuscitation."

Mortality from in-hospital cardiac arrests remains a large problem world-wide. In an effort to improve in-hospital cardiac arrest mortality, there is a renewed focus on team training and operations. Here, we describe the implementation of a "pit crew" model to provide in-hospital resuscitation care.

Usually a benign tumor, that commonly presents as a solitary blue nodule with spindled MELANOCYTES covered by smooth SKIN. Several variants have been identified, one variant being malignant. The blue color is caused by large, densely packed melanocytes deep in the DERMIS of the nevus. In CHILDREN, they usually occur on the BUTTOCKS and LUMBOSACRAL REGION and are referred to as cellular blue nevi. Malignant blue nevi are more commonly found on the SCALP.

A statistical tool for detecting and modeling gene-gene interactions. It is a non-parametric and model-free approach.
