Description

Full Code will improve your clinical decision-making and patient care through realistic medical simulation. Take on the challenge of complex clinical cases in a virtual emergency room with the highest environmental fidelity. Whether you are an experienced clinician or in the first year of PA school, you will enjoy the challenge of solving Full Code cases! CLINICAL PRACTICE Begin by taking a history and performing a physical exam, then click on equipment in the virtual resuscitation bay to order tests and perform interventions. Choose amongst a host of drugs, bedside tests, labs, and imaging to help you narrow the differential diagnosis. Our physiology engine will change the vitals based on your interventions and the patient’s condition just as they would in real life. While you zero in on the final diagnosis and definitively treat the patient you can consult with specialists and nursing staff for assistance, but the patient’s survival rests in your hands. PERSONALIZED ASSESSMENT At the end of each case, you receive a score in six core clinical competencies to guide your continuing education. Run through the case as many times as you like to improve your score and hone your resuscitation skills. After each attempt you have the choice of revealing partial answers which can give you valuable insight into the correct diagnosis. By revealing the full case answer you gain access to our detailed debrief notes which walk you through each case’s essential diagnostic and therapeutic interventions required to save the patient. Finally, we provide you with further reading through high-quality relevant web-links and references related to each case. CASE DESIGN The Full Code team prioritizes environmental fidelity in every case and we strive to replicate the complexity of managing critically ill patients from presentation to disposition. The medical content of each case is created by our team of emergency physicians lead by James Kimo Takayesu, a Harvard faculty member and ED attending at Massachusetts General Hospital with 15 years of experience training emergency medicine residents. He has received 16 teaching awards in his career for educational innovation and bedside teaching. Each case is peer reviewed twice, and our team continuously updates our clinical content to reflect the best in clinical and educational practice.

  • Nice review for the Emergency Provider

    The scenarios touch upon many of the common and not so common presentations in the Emergency Department. It’s a nice review and doesn’t dive too deep where you get lost in the weeds. It’s a good reminder of some of the true emergencies that we don’t see everyday but need to have a firm grasp of. Reviews at the end of the case have quick summaries with articles attached if you want a more in depth review. All in all I would recommend
  • It’s fun, but hardly accurate

    I’ve only played one scenario so far and noticed quite a few errors in the desired treatments. The case is “#22 Found Down” and is a CPR turned MI. The patient is unconscious and unresponsive yet to get a 100% rating on interventions one must give them Aspirin. That drug is administered oral only and is absolutely contraindicated on an unconscious patient who cannot chew and swallow it. Also it rates chest x-ray as not a recommended procedure. Any patient who is intubated must have a chest X-ray to confirm tube placement. No exceptions. Also I disagree with the Heparin Drip for a patient about to go in for a surgical procedure. Granted it may be necessary, but anything affecting PT, PTT and/or INR in the presence of any surgical procedure should only be ordered by the physician performing the procedure. Unless the Cardiology consult comes back with “start Heparin prior to sending to cath lab” it shouldn’t be done in the ER. Otherwise this is a very fun app and so far I’ve enjoyed it.
  • A fun way to practice ED cases!

    Wish I knew about this app earlier!
  • Crashes

    After paying for subscription, the app just crashes within a few minutes every time..
  • I love it!!

    I’m an EMT and a paramedic student and this app is amazing! I wish I would’ve known about it sooner. The cases are great and i have learned soo many new things that can now help me in the field. I wish they weren’t so many typos and stuff though I think it should get reviewed again... many cases with errors. But aside from that the concept it great and definitely worth it.
  • Not well planned out.

    This app is obviously knocked made by ER personnel. This product was obviously not beta tested. It is full of errors. Take case 16, an elderly man with an ischemic stroke. After the exam and stabilization, I ordered bloodwork and a CT scan immediately, as we do in the ER. The CT scan came back normal so I ordered MRI/MRA which showed a significant MCA stroke, which by the way, would have been revealed by the CT. The case results gave me a 74% on investigation. It stated that the CTA was critical but the MRI/MRA was unnecessary, even though it was the MRI/MRA that showed the stroke. Also, the patient seemed to have a new onset of atrial fabulation. He was not on any anti coagulant therapy. Yet, the cardiologist did not know why he was called and neither did the neurologist for that matter. It seems that most scenarios that I do have stupid mistakes such as the ones described above. Again, this app should’ve been tested by people that work in the ER such as RNs, physician’s assistants or ER doctors. I am sorry that I ever purchased it.
  • Great app as a med student

    I’m in my last year of med school going into emergency medicine and this is an amazing app for simulation. I’m not even studying for step anymore and I just have a ton of fun doing cases every day. I hope they add more in the future.
  • Much improved

    Responsive patient with dynamic vital signs makes a huge difference. Interactivity increases the depth of the simulation dramatically. Still a bit pricy, especially for students. Keep up the great work!
  • Great overall but pricey

    Love the app overall, but wish it was so pricey. It’d be nice if you paid a single fee for sets of cases rather than a monthly subscription.
  • No Prehospital care at all but great app

    A little pricey subscription but it’s worth it to just give it at least a try. The cases are good too and there’s a lot to learn. I wish it were possible to re-examine pt or to see a vital trends after notable interventions. The few times it allows you to re-examine this is after intubation to reassess lung sounds and also it allows to rerunning labs. The patient doesn’t also decompensate over time. If time could be a factor that you can switch on or off in the app that would be impressive as this is an emergency medicine app. Worth the money I think and very time consuming. Too easy to get drawn in to the whole case.
