"Code Runner is a must have for anyone involved in the medical field"

Use Code Runner during actual codes to provide the highest quality ACLS to your patients each and every time!

Someone dying? There's an app for that... Code Runner is an easy to use program that leads you through a typically high stress situation. This program allows you to easily run medical codes by presenting the current Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) algorithms in a simple, user friendly format.

Code Runner is designed to guide you through the management of cardiac arrhythmias by providing you with a continuous list of timed prompts according to the current ACLS guidelines in real time, while allowing you to log what care is delivered to your patient.

Designed with all the necessary logic to limit and adjust medication doses according to dosing limits, Code Runner records each defibrillation, medication, and cardiac rhythm change during an arrest. Let Code Runner keep track of everything that you’ve done for your patient while allowing you to think critically about why your patient is coding in the first place.

When a code is completed, Code Runner generates a final summary report that includes the total code time, all actions and the time they were performed, as well as the ultimate patient outcome. All of your codes are saved as Code Reports, with customizable names, and organized by date and time. This allows you to use these reports for documentation purposes, as well as to review previous codes for continued education.

This program is ideal for all members of the health care team. Whether you are ACLS certified or not, Code Runner is perfect for you.

Try Code Runner once and you’ll wonder how you ever ran a code without it.


- Contains algorithms derived from the current ACLS guidelines

- Includes code algorithms for the 4 major cardiac rhythms:

   - Pulseless Ventricular Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia

    - Pulseless Electrical Activity (PEA) and Asystole     

    - Unstable Bradycardia    

    - Unstable Tachycardia

- Code duration is prominently displayed, so you always know exactly how long the code has been running

- Prompts for CPR, defibrillation, and medications are presented in real time

- Accurately records each action and the exact time it is performed

- Medication dose limits are automatically adjusted and enforced

- For example, give 300mg Amiodarone, the future optional doses are automatically reduced to 150mg

- Switch between rhythms during a code and the new algorithm is immediately presented while preserving all previous actions.

- Allows an individual to run the code in a more organized and efficient manner

- Automatic Alerts every 10 minutes

- Detailed code reports include total code time, all actions performed, and patient outcome

- Code reports are saved by date and can be renamed for easy retrieval

- Saved code reports can be used to write code notes

- All this in a simple, easy to use interface!

5/5 stars

Excellent app

Excellent idea and layout. Great for both study and hopefully real-time code situations. Highly recommended!

4/5 stars

Great Medical App

Great application and reference. However, I feel a little bit awkward pulling my ipod/iphone out in the middle of a code as it looks like I'm not working. Nevertheless, very handy as a refresher before the real thing.

5/5 stars

Very nice! Needs report export capability.

As an ICU doc that runs codes regularly, I am very impressed with this app. It has excellent logging and reminder features. Even for the experienced, it good to systematically cycle through the differential diagnosis in a checklist or freestyle manner. I encourage the developers to create an export end-of-code report to email feature. I could then email to myself, then copy-paste the text report to my patient note. That would be fantastic!
