Abstract

Background: mental cardiopulmonary resuscitation actions are the critical ones to save patients affected by respiratory-cardiac arrest which needs high level of related skill of knowledge. So, this study was conducted to the level of Skills and knowledge of
bachelor freshman Emergency Medical Students about the cardiopulmonary resuscitation life supports in 2014.
Methods: A descriptive- analytical study was conducted on 146 bachelor freshman Emergency Medical Students. Data was collected using a demographic questionnaire, an attitude questionnaire, and a checklist for assessing skills by researchers.
Data was analyzed by descriptive statistics and one sample t test through IBMSPSS21 software
Results: The mean score of Students’ knowledge about basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) life supports was 22.90 out of 36 (maximum score). Thus, a negative knowledge and skill gap was observed which was equal to 13.1 and statistically significant
(P<0.01). Categorizing by knowledge, 31.4% of students had low, 59% moderate and only 9.6% had high theoretical knowledge of CPR life supports. Also, there was a significant difference between students’ practical skills and optimal skills of CPR life support
actions one by one.
Conclusion: According to the results, there is a distance between students’ current knowledge and skill of CPR life supports with optimal one. Thus, planning training courses for students who are in medical centers whit high rate of CPR life supports should be
given high priority.
