What+is+a+Code+blue%3F

AT MAST Academy, there are procedures in place in the events of different emergencies. A lesser known code at MAST is a Code Blue.

A Code Blue is any medical emergency that demands immediate attention. A common misconception about a Code Blue is that it is only for cardiac arrests, however any health issue lead constitutes a code blue. Examples include seizures and respiratory issues.
