    Also please note those calls coded as R2 and C2 were coded this first as the patient was not in a cardiac arrest when the call was coded and a resource had already stopped the clock. For example an unconscious patient, fitting or chest pains would be coded initially as a R2/C2 call but then the patient then deteriorated into a cardiac arrest.
