A Code Blue, When Every Second Counts
What is The Code Blue App?
The Code Blue App is a tool made for hospital staff to use during a code blue. This app helps them time the actions in a code blue to the American Heart Association's ® recommendations. It is simple to use and records the data needed for hospital records.
What is a Code Blue?
When a person experiences respiratory or cardiac failure, it is typically called a code blue. During a code blue a combination of physical, electrical, and chemical interventions are used to resuscitate the patient.
Who Created The Code Blue App?
This app was developed by Jace Billingsley for the Congressional App Challenge 2021. His father is a respiratory therapist, and he participates in resuscitation efforts very frequently. Many times, the documentation efforts in a code blue are not as detailed and accurate as is needed. This app can assist any healthcare provider to deliver better lifesaving efforts during a code blue.
Frontend + Backend
- The Code Blue App offers timers for medication and pulse checks. The default medications listed are: Epinepherine, Amiodarone, Atropine, Adenosine, and Lidocaine. Additionally, there is an "Other Med" button for medications not listed.
- After a code a preview of the codes logs is shown on all devices, and a file is downloaded on computers containing the time the code started, time of events, details of events, etc.
- The Code Blue App has a Start Code button, an End Code Button, and a ROSC Obtained button. Both the End Code and Rosc Obtained buttons will end the code blue, however in the log file they will show different outcomes. ROSC Obtained means "Return of Spontaneous Circulation," meaning the patient has been resuscitated successully. The End Code button will show in the file the code has ended, but the patient has not been resuscitated.
- app.thecodeblueapp.com/autostart will automatically start the code whenever the webpage is openend.
