Epinephrine is the first drug given, it can be given every 3 minutes. Its job is to encourage the heart to beat faster and also compress blood vessels to give blood to the brain. Amiodarone is another drug used, typically to reverse arrhythmias. Every couple of minutes, compressions have to stop for a rhythm check.

Code blue is the term used by most medical institutions to indicate that a patient is having cardiopulmonary arrest and needs immediate resuscitation. The resuscitation is done by the “code team” of the hospital but initial resuscitation efforts should be done by the nearest nurses on duty.

Amiodarone. This drug is given during cardiac arrest to treat specific cardiac arrthymias, mainly ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. The Resuscitation Council recommends that the first treatment for ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia should be electrical defibrillation.

The first one used in pulseless cardiac arrests is usually epinephrine 1:10,000. If you do a Google search for epinephrine, you should come up with some good stuff about its actions. That will probably also take you to some good sites to find out about the other code meds.
