Code Leader helps healthcare providers leading a code make realtime decisions during any code scenario. It provides code timers, live recommendations, and references. It also provides a log of every code that can be saved for inclusion as part of a note in any electronic medical record (EMR). It is fully HIPAA-compliant. This app is a must-have for any medicine intern, resident, attending, physician assistant, nurse, or nurse practitioner who will ever be responsible for leading a code.
It is the *only* app that tells you what to do and when to do it during a code (medications, shocks, etc) based on the rhythm in real time. Those certified in Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) will recognize the algorithms supported in this app. Code Leader follows the 2015 Guidelines of the American Heart Association for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).

Not great for documenting
Gives helpful reminders during code, but timers are confusing. One timer for both drug and shock administration so you don’t know which the clock is running for.
I was hoping to be able to use it to chart the code afterwards but it is not good for that. No way to edit if a wrong button is hit. No way to record shock joule amount.
If you are working on changes, allowing user to customize app more would help greatly, such as being able to move interventions higher or lower on list or being able to add medications. 10 and 20mL normal saline flushes which are commonly used and need to be documented.
Pacing Ma/Rate, Intubation, and procedures
We ran a code today. Patient was Asystole for a short time, then V-FIB but then went V-TACH, and then Sinus Bradycardia. Issue is, we had no way on the app to document the Ma or Rate of pacing. We could not even document that we paced him. No way to document that the patient was a Toxin in the Hs and Ts. TOXIN was the diagnosis, but we could not document it on the app. We could not document the time of intubation. We had no way to document what the EtCo2 or other parameters were We would like a way to document whether we administered Epinephrine during that round, or did not, that way we don’t get a pulse check in 20 seconds and in the event the PLEASE ADMINISTER EPINEPHRINE got a YES, we did administer eppi, we would not be prompted to check pulse until a minute after the Eppi. And in the event where the pulse check ended up being right after the eppi, we could select NO, for the pause in CPR!! And then it would be documented that we had forgone the pulse check due to the just administered Eppi. And if you could fix this, IT WOULD GET FIVE STARS, and I’d come to the review, and put a bunch of stars here!!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for such detailed feedback! We are currently reworking the entire application to Version 2, which will include the requests you've made, as well as so much that we've learned through soon-to-be-published simlab research and real case studies. Keep on saving lives and stay tuned!
Please change the code timer to a CPR timer as sometimes we have to stop CPR. Also add a task icon for intubation, IV insertion, etc.
