Abstract

Introduction: Successful cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can lead to positive outcome after sudden cardiac arrest. Hence knowledge and skills among the medical and paramedical staff regarding CPR becomes very important. Various international guidelines were being followed till now, but recently the Indian guidelines for CPR have been published. We conducted an interventional study to know the effectiveness of short training of CPR based on these guidelines among the doctors.
Materials and Methods: The doctors who attended the training were included in this interventional study. The training comprised of a lecture on all aspects of Indian guidelines of CPR published in 2017, followed by hands on training including assessment, airway management and chest compression on a manikin. The participants were requested to fill a questionnaire before and after the training. Their knowledge score was calculated from the answers.
Results: Complete questionnaires were 108 in total. Mean post-test score (6.58) was significantly higher than the mean pre-test score (2.94), p value <0>91%, 8 scored 81-90%, 23 scored 71-80%). 28 participants (25.93%) scored less than 50% even after the training.
Conclusion: Overall knowledge score improved after 90 minutes of short CPR training based on Indian guidelines among the doctors.
