Pediatric rapid response teams have become standard over the past decade, but are organized heterogeneously at US academic hospitals, with rare financial support. To compare rapid response team efficacy, pediatric hospitals should agree on standard outcome measures, whether it be a standard definition of floor arrest or of clinical deterioration.
