Crisis Code is designed to teach Crisis Management for Advanced Cardiac Life Support. It was developed by Larry Chu, MD, Kyle Harrison, MD and the Stanford AIM Lab.

Healthcare professionals are required to handle medical emergencies and crises. Yet, many these healthcare providers are not always knowledgeable about teamwork and evidence-based techniques for managing a medical crisis. This iPad-based course will teach physicians crisis resource management principles and the application in providing ACLS during cardiac arrest.

The instructional format for this course will include learning trigger videos and video podcast lectures.

Learning Objectives

Objective 1: Develop strategies to implement Crisis Resource Management principles and their application during cardiac arrest treatment.
Objective 2: Develop strategies to utilize updated guidelines for management of cardiac arrest.
Objective 3: Develop strategies to build skills for: 1) airway management and vascular access, 2) management of PEA (Pulseless Electrical Activity)/Asystole, ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation, symptomatic bradycardia, unstable supraventricular tachycardia, and 3) post-resuscitation management

This is wonderful!

What a great app! For anyone who is involved in ACLS you'll find this to be complementary to what ACLS teaches. This goes beyond ACLS and teaches you how to put it into practice. My only suggestion is to update the app to make it easier to download segments (they take more than 15 mins to download and 15 mins is the max the ipad will stay on for, and if a download is cut off you have to start over).

Haven't used it yet. It's crashed EVERY time I've tried logging in. Not worth time or money


Broken and crashes

I'm a paramedic and have been in EMS working in Santa Clara County for 11 years. The videos were a bit dry. ACLS is not something thought of when we think of entertainment, but I feel this app would benefit by adding some more interaction between the case studies and the user interacting during the code, overall you guys did a great job. I saw right away the difference in how a code is run in a hospital setting versus in the field. The goal is the same for both environments which is evaluate, adapt, communicate, react, and then revaluate. Again I like what you are doing and would like to see this take off.
