Dictionary: Code Blue is defined as high priority MDR reports based on criteria including but not limited to: pediatric deaths, multiple deaths and serious injuries, device explosions, and electrocutions. Timely review of code blue MDRs can minimize widespread failure of the device, thereby limiting the loss of life due to similar events as the one submitted.
