ABSTRACT
PURPOSE:
We undertook this study to evaluate the pertinence of yearly CPR training for three years in hospital.
METHODS:
We evaluated 106 participants (79 registered nurses, 17 assistant nurses, 10 medical technicians who were not emergency medical technicians). We performed the education once a year for three years. We used color slides and videos for the lecture. We used a CPR training manikin for training in the CPR skills. For the evaluation, we used a list involving 10 items about understanding the CPR scheme and the CPR training program. We divided the 106 participants based on frequency of training, occupation and career.
RESULTS:
The mean number of points for understanding the CPR scheme was 17.5 points out of 28. The mean number of points for check for breathing, rescue breathing, pulse check, and chest compression were 2.5, 2.3, 1.7, and 1.7, respectively out of 4 points. In CPR skills, appropriate rescue breathing was 37+/-31%, and appropriate chest compression was 62+/-39%. There were no significant statistical differences based on frequency of CPR training or career. There were significant statistical differences based on occupation.
CONCLUSION:
Our yearly CPR training in the hospital was not pertinent in improving the ability to perform CPR. Different CPR training methods are needed for different occupation. We think that further study are needed to develope effective CPR training methods and to identify the appropriate re-training interval.
