PROTECTED CODE BLUE GUIDELINES

All personnel should don full enhanced PPE (bouffant cap + fluid resistant gown + neck /face shield + gloves + N95) prior to initiating resuscitative efforts.

This may result in delays to CPR but MUST be adhered to.

Consider LMA insertion if unsuccessful intubation on first attempt.
