The American Heart Association’s Full Code Pro (FCP 3.4) is a free, easy-to-use, mobile app that allows you to quickly document critical interventions during cardiac arrest resuscitation events. This app lets you focus on the patient without sacrificing proper documentation.
FCP 3.4 includes a user controlled metronome with an adjustable rate between 100 and 120 bpm. Now you can use FCP to check your CPR rate performance.
Using this real-time app to log your actions, you can improve the availability and accuracy of documentation of a resuscitation event. This gives you more robust data for review, debriefing and resuscitation quality improvement. FCP 3.3 has a customizable drug list, pre-populated with common cardiac arrest drugs. It also includes lists of common events and rhythms.
It is highly recommended that you back up all of your log files in your database and remove older versions of FCP before installing this new version. All log files and data from version 2.O and 2.2 will NOT transfer to Version 3.4
FCP 3.4 is for use by paramedics, EMT-Bs, emergency room nurses, emergency room physicians and other in- and out-of-hospital healthcare providers.
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.

Ratings and Reviews
Good idea, can be improved
The AHA recommends this for BLS instructors to use. In that context, it'd be great to have a log of elapsed time for each entry. For example, that last round of CPR took 16 seconds, they paused CPR for 8 seconds, etc. It'd also be great if it would calculate chest compression fraction (CCF). For the log to be really useful, I'd need to download the data and make a bunch of calculations. Real-time feedback would be much better not only for training but also during a real call.
Possible changes and issues
App is a great idea but here are my issues and ideas: Metronome does not work with the current version of iPhone IOS (9.3.2). Needs to alarm when 2 minutes of CPR is complete and again when CPR has been "paused" for greater than 10 seconds. Maybe make drug time editable to local protocols and alert able.
It looks like this app hasn’t been updated in 5 years, yet it’s still part of AHA’s training program. Needs support for newer iPhones, especially putting the metronome play button somewhere that isn’t covered by the volume slider. Also, this app isn’t setup to keep the phone awake. You could be midway through cpr, and if your phone goes to sleep, the metronome stops. Also can’t adjust metronome BPM while it’s ticking. Hopefully AHA will spruce up this app, but for now, I wouldn’t recommend.
