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
- Over 105 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 over 105 emergency medicine scenarios. Or choose a topic and let the app give you a random case.
2. PRESENTATION AND HISTORY
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.

A Large Library of High Quality Cases
Excellent app for clinical thinking
As a medical student going into a career in emergency medicine, this app has been absolutely invaluable. The cases are lifelike, presented in a very intuitive way, and the feedback at the end is better than what I’ve had from some of my actual professors. A must have for any medical student hoping to do EM.
This app made me change my major. Engineering to Pre-Med!
Find it really useful and fun to learn Emergency, I’m in my last year of med school and these clinical scenarios are great way to apply my clinical reasoning skills, great range of cases some are very challenging and some are easily manageable, as in real life. Very happy with my subscription worth every penny. Well done guys.
Exceeds expectations, there's nothing else like quite like it. Great job from the developers.
Fun and great tool
I like to use this app when I know I should be reviewing, but my brain is dead. Is it perfect? No, but what is these days. Good practice and prompts you to look into latest EBM. Keep up the good work guys.
Love this app. Very applicable scenarios with even better pearls.
Great app- really helps solidify the material we've been studying. Really nice how it forces you to think through what needs to be done (e.g. do I need to intubate this patient? do I need further workup?) instead of giving you multiple-choice prompts.
Awesome game to learn how to resuscitate patients in the emergency room.. perfect for the person who wants to learn more about medical procedures and for medical school students who need to practice.
THE CASE LIBRARY
Our library of over 105 emergency medicine cases are created by our team of Harvard-trained educators led by James Kimo Takayesu, an ED attending at Massachusetts General Hospital with 15 years of experience training emergency medicine residents. Every case is peer reviewed twice and kept up-to-date to reflect evolving standards of care and the feedback of our thousands of professional users.
