I was just wondering if someone could explain what meds are commonly used in a code situation?

I am only an RN student, so by no means do I know it all, but I found this site that lists out many of the meds that are used during codes. It is from and ER RN, and it also lists ACLS meds used in the field by medics (I assume you are in EMS from your name, so you may know many of these and how they work already). But, from my experience, not just in clinical but also as a tech at the local hospital, many of these meds listed out, are also what are used in house. If anybody can correct me, or has more info, please chime in.

Taking ACLS will give you the info you want.
Epinephrine, Vasopressor, Atropine, Amiodarone, Adenosine, Narcan, Lidocaine to name a few
