tidyResus is a simple cardiac arrest/resus/code log and tracker. It gives you a rhythm stopwatch, event tracking, metronome, and easily accessible summary reports.
Simply tap the initial rhythm and a countdown will begin, the rhythm logged. You can record events including changes in resus state (eg. CPR, ROSC), airway interventions, access, drugs, and anything else you like. You can customise or add new events that suit your area of practice.
At any point you can view an event log, which will show the events you have recorded. An event summary can be exported to the clipboard so you can copy and paste the summary elsewhere. You can review previous incidents and their associated log.
Primarily aimed at prehospital cardiac arrests where resources can be scarce, but may help in any situation where a scribe is not immediately available.
tidyResus was developed for those trained in providing ALS. It performs no calculation nor interpretation, and offers no recommendation on assessment, treatment or management of a cardiac arrest. You are entirely responsible for ensuring accurate documentation and appropriate cardiac arrest management. tidyResus is entirely administrative. It records no information beyond the generic events.
You will lose any existing archives. This update removes any third party packages and uses Apple's native solutions for storing data. This makes the app size much smaller (~20 times smaller!) even though there's plenty of new features, and eliminates the risk of third party tracking.
- New interface with much easier access to shocks, adrenaline, overall timers. Have tried to keep the core rhythm timer + rhythm check obvious, even if you don't use any of the other features.
- Audible notification and vibrate for the rhythm check timer. Still depends on your device's volume! You can disable this in settings.
- New event types and custom events. Record state changes (CPR, ROSC, PLE), airways, access, drugs, and any other events you want to add. Default events are included, but customise as you need.
- Export from tidyResus: one-click allows you to copy and paste the entire event log generated from your resus.
- Metronome now plays in silent mode. This still respects your volume setting
- Visual reminder for adrenaline: the button will change to orange when four minutes have elapsed since the last adrenaline
- Dark mode (follows your device's preferences)
- Rewritten into SwiftUI
Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good app
Used this recently at a cardiac arrest, one problem arose when trying to use the metronome, as it can only be used when phone is not on silent. Put phone on loud to make it work, but subsequently received several text messages/WhatsApps whilst still using the app. Causing loud notification sounds to be heard. (Very off putting) Would be a benefit if the metronome could still be used when in phones silent mode, so this wouldn’t occur again.
I really don’t think much more is needed for this app.. anymore and it just becomes more fidgety. It’s currently simple and effective. Only addition I feel would be good is an alarm at the end of every 2mins but hasn’t been an issue when I’ve used on the job without it.
Also, everyone is requesting a button to record shocks. It’s simple to work out, if the rhythm you recorded was shockable, then you should have delivered a shock so therefore just count the shockable rhythms.
A handy small counter of shocks given wouldn’t go astray but I think it’s brilliant and has gone down well on all the jobs I’ve used It on.
Small tweaks would make it great
All seems pretty good and handy, few additions that would be handy especially for Pre-Hospital arrest / bystander treatment:
- An on screen counter of compressions with a notification every 30 to prompt the timing for 2 rescue breaths
- bigger more obvious start button
- not to automatically have a 2 minute time ring but instead to start with a 30:2 compressions ring then move to others if AED pressed etc
- Less ability to suddenly stop metronome, other apps can continue playing sound if you come out of the app, phone goes on standby etc, and this even stops if you accidentally tap the options screen
- Better historic logs including total time of not just rhythm and ALS interventions
Otherwise looks pretty good!
