To investigate the ability of laypeople to apply basic CPR techniques after recent training.
Cross-sectional assessment of practical CPR skills.
Type of parricipanrs: 151 laypeople who were trained twice in the preceding 20 to 24 months.
Practical skills were tested using six primary recorded variables that describe the quality of CPR techniques in a training situation.
A total score on the skills of each participant was computed on the basis of a predefined scoring system.
Thirty-three percent of the participants were able to perform adequate CPR.
The compression:relaxation ratio, the breathing volume, and the breathing interval were points of concern.
