It’s New Years Eve — your patient presents after heavy alcohol intake and a possible head injury…

His heart rate is 46, BP 175/75. We’ve got him on the monitor and have IV access. Should we prepare to intubate? Or can he sleep it off?

FULL CODE is a serious game that lets you diagnose & treat critical patients in the ED

Practice diagnosis and treatment in nearly 100 complex and realistic emergency medicine scenarios.  Runs on your iPhone, iPad, Android or browser.  A case takes about 10 minutes.

Serious learning, seriously fun.

FEATURES

  • Nearly 100 cases written by Harvard-trained attending emergency physicians.
  • Over 250 possible actions including exams, labs, tests, radiology, meds, procedures and consultations.
  • Detailed scoring rubrics define critical, recommended, unnecessary and harmful actions specific to each case.
  • Dynamic patient physiology that changes in response to your treatment.
  • Post-case debrief explains exactly what you missed and and why it is important.
  • Interactive 3D scene brings each scenario to life and evolves as you stabilize & intervene.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Full Code is the easiest way to practice clinical scenarios. Do you have 10 minutes? Then you have time to treat a virtual patient and practice a particular presentation.

 

No mannikins, no headset, no peers, no instructor — it’s okay to make a mistake, our patients are very forgiving!

1. SELECT A CASE

Choose a specific case from our library of nearly 100 emergency medicine scenarios. Or choose a topic and let the app give you a random case.

2. PRESENTATION AND HISTORY

Every case starts starts with a 3D patient on the gurney along with a chief complaint, history, and any notes provided by EMS and the triage nurse.  Read carefully, these likely contain important clues.

3. REVIEW OF SYSTEMS & PHYSICAL EXAM

Ask the patient about their symptoms (if conscious!), then attach the monitor and perform a physical examination.

Every action you take will count toward your final score.  Be thorough, but don’t waste time!

4. STABILIZE THEN FORMULATE A DIFFERENTIAL

Patients often arrive in unstable condition —quickly administer oxygen or fluids and don’t hesitate to defibrillate or put them on a vent if needed.

Next fill out a thorough differential to help guide your testing, imaging and lab orders.  Prioritize common diagnoses, but don’t ignore the possibility of something rare.

5. PERFORM TESTS, ORDER LABS & RADIOLOGY

Every case has realistic results for over 60 different tests, labs and radiology orders. Zoom in on ECGs, X-Rays and MRI’s and look for abnormalities.

Investigate the patient to narrow down your differential and arrive at a final diagnosis. But don’t get carried away, or you will be penalized!

6. INTERVENE AND CONSULT

Once you are sure of your diagnosis, administer appropriate meds and perform any indicated procedures. As you do so, keep an eye on the patient’s vitals to make sure your interventions are having the desired effect.

Next consult with any specialists or let other teams in the hospital know about your patient.

7. DISPOSITION AND HAND-OFF THE PATIENT

When your role with the patient is complete, decide whether to admit, discharge or prep them for the OR.

Last and most important — you must choose a final diagnosis, or in some cases, multiple diagnoses.

8. REVIEW SCORE & DEBRIEF

After the case you will be scored on every action you took. The diagnosis & disposition only count for a portion of your score so it is imperative that you perform all indicated exams, tests and treatments.

Drill into each category and optionally reveal the answers to see what you did wrong. Individual actions have written explanations and the case has a thorough debrief & discussion.
