In reply: Many thanks to Buist for his comments. He is quite correct in pointing out that we used the wrong reference.1 The correct reference was another study showing that the mortality of patients subject to a rapid response system (RRS) was higher than that for patients in an intensive care unit.2 Our apologies for this error.
