iArrest was developed to give healthcare professionals a powerful tool to navigate stressful and challenging cardiac arrest calls. Whether as a Paramedic on scene or as a clinician in hospital, this app can assist in running structured and effective adult cardiac arrest scenarios. Developed by an anaesthetist training in London, this app takes into consideration the most recent Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines 2015.
It serves as an aide-memoire for basic tasks that can easily be overlooked in stressful scenarios. iArrest also incorporates a number of timers to assist with rhythm analysis, adrenaline timings and arrest duration. It will remind the user via audible and visual cues about necessary interventions even if a clinician’s phone is muted. iArrest has been programmed to prevent phones from going into sleep mode, in order to ensure continuous use throughout the arrest.
iArrest will record the exact time an important event or an intervention has occurred and present the user with a detailed log of events. These logs can be copied to the clipboard and used for documentation and record keeping.
iArrest is currently undergoing extensive testing in simulated and real world scenarios.
We are continuously improving and expanding on iArrest’s functionality.
iArrest can not replace sound knowledge in Advance Life Support and should not be used by non-ALS trained clinicians. Use this app at your own risk and always use appropriate clinical judgement. Please familiarise yourself with the functionality of this app before using it in real life scenarios.

Simple yet essential app
The app is simple in its layout and in an environment where there is stress and often loss of situational awareness this simple format is a vital tool in recording essential events and key information that will ultimately go on to help guide a patients care but also provide more accurate data to allow development and research on improving the care that is delivered during cardiac arrests. Highly recommended and credit to the developer for creating such a simple yet essential app
Every arrest needs one
It a perfect guide to assist you with running an arrest.
In hospitals they tend to have a person timing.
Prehospital there just isn’t enough people to do that one role (most of the time)
This app does that role for you, alarming for your rhythm checks, and reminding when your drugs are due.
I’ve used it several times in anger, and after showing it to my colleagues, most of them now use it.
Excellent practical app!
This is an excellent application which enables any member of the resuscitation team to log the key times and decisions made during a stressful cardiac arrest. It’s simple to use interface and clear labelling ensures that it is incredibly easy to use and user friendly.
I have used it at actual cardiac arrests and as a teaching exercise during ALS and ILS Courses.
Would strongly recommend it!
