I'm assuming you are coding for the ED physician, NOT for the hospital.
Read the CPT description of Cariopulmonary resuscitation and if what your physician did fits, then you can code it.
NOTE: if you are going to ALSO code critical care, then the time spent in CPR CANNOT be counted as critical care time.
You will also need a -25 modifier on any E/M service you code.
If you are coding for the hospital ... nevermind ... you'll need advice from a hospital coder.
