Abstract

How much do we Remember after CPR Training? – Experience from a Sub-Saharan Teaching Hospital

In-hospital survival rate after cardiac arrest is low  and depends on the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the alarm response time, and the time to defibrillation. All medical practitioners should be able to perform CPR with competence. Level of competence has been linked to the knowledge and skill of CPR, which is a factor of continuous training. The 2010 guidelines on the initiation of BLS during a cardiac arrest consists of recognizing the cardiac arrest, calling for help, initiating chest compressions and ventilations.
