About this app

EZResus is a resuscitation reference tool created for health care professionals. It provides support for all facets of the first hour of resuscitation. EZResus does not replace clinical judgment nor provide diagnoses. A doctor's advice is required in addition to using this app and before making any medical decisions.

By embracing the field of resuscitation, you commit to be part of the team that deals with the chaos of the first hour of resuscitation. During this first hour, the stakes are high, your patient is dying and you need to act quickly without any room for mistakes. Even if you practice in a big center, you always feel a bit alone. You and your team are accountable to the patient and you MUST find the right diagnosis and treatment as fast as possible.

The problem is that you’ll never know everything you need to know. How could you? Whatever your current practice, you can potentially face any emergent condition in the entire human life spectrum. Resuscitation is the only field where you have absolutely no control over the type of patient you’ll need to care for. However you want to put it, someday, you’ll need to act outside your comfort zone. And this is scary.

So we asked ourselves the tough question: What can we do about it?
Well, first, we need to address cognitive overload, this fog that impedes our rational thinking in the heat of the moment. It’s crazy to do any kind of mental calculation in 2023 and we should delegate anything that can be calculated to a computer: drug dosing, equipment selection, ventilator settings, drips... everything.

Then we thought: A doctor alone is useless. If we want this to be useful, it must be a reference for the entire team: physicians, nurses, paramedics, pharmacists and respiratory therapists, etc. This way, in limited resource settings, everyone has access to everything: the nurse becomes the respiratory therapist, the doctor now can prepare drips.

We didn’t discuss the topic of the spectrum of the app very long. If you can face any type of patient, you need an app with a weight range from 0.4 to 200kg. For such an extreme weight range, we recruited a NICU team and pharmacists specialized in drug dosing in obesity. We added weight estimation according to gestational age and developed ideal body weight drug dosing.

Finally, we needed to address the knowledge gap problem. How do you make a tool that provides extremely detailed information for things you don’t know but at the same time give you just the essential for topics you master? Maybe you need detailed information for an esmolol drip, but only a quick “double checking” for your epinephrine dose? This knowledge gap varies widely between us. A milrinone drip for a 3kg patient is a nightmare for most of us, but a regular monday, for Chris, our pharmacist in a pediatric cardiac ICU. For Chris, the nightmare is the preparation of alteplase for a massive pulmonary embolism in a pregnant patient, something we do everyday for stroke patients in adult centers.

We worked hard on this one and we came up with “previews”. Previews are a way to access, extremely quickly, relevant information to a clinical situation. We grouped those under clinical conditions so you get, in under 3 clicks, everything you need to know. Want to go deep? Just click on the element and you get the detailed information.

So this is it, EZResus, our answer to this crazy field of resuscitation.
We really hope you enjoy our work.
Feel free to drop us an email for anything we could do better. We are here for the mission. We want to save lives with you guys!
