American Heart Associations (AHA) Full Code Pro App

Full Code Pro App
 
The AHA’s Full Code Pro App (FCP 3.0) is a free, easy-to-use, mobile application that allows healthcare providers to quickly document critical interventions during cardiac arrest resuscitation events. This app enables providers to focus on the patient without sacrificing proper documentation.


This application allows medical professionals to use it in a real-time code.  It allows the medical professional the ability to record the entire code easily. It can also simplify data entry and helps providers increase the availability and accuracy of documentation. The information that providers log enables more robust data for review, debriefing and resuscitation quality improvement.
The AHA's Full Code App may be used by paramedics, EMT-Bs, emergency room nurses, emergency room physicians and other in- and out-of-hospital healthcare providers.
 
In using this application the medical provider can make notes, keep track of shocks delivered, when an IV was started, what medications were given, and when the Return of Spontaneous Circulation (ROSC) was achieved.  After the code, the medical provider can then email the information to the resuscitation team as well as use the information for documentation purposes.
