Updated for 2021
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).

Ratings and Reviews
App was insufficient
Poor app! No way to write things manually, so we can’t document our wtco, or if ECMO was initiated, or our pacing settings! No way to document what was decided upon in our Hs and Ts. No way to do contact the creator of the app! No way to do important stuff like this! I’m not happy with this app at all! Low grade, profoundly limited, No updates in over a Year, and that’s a shame!
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!
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.
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.
