Introduction: Awareness of pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is obligatory for every graduated medical student. In fact, only correct and effective Cardiopulmonary resuscitation can increase the survival rate of patients with cardiopulmonary arrest and since CPR techniques and maneuvers should be done in a specific way for children, it is important to evaluate the knowledge of pediatric resuscitation.
Methods: In a cross-sectional study, multiple-choice questions were designed about basic and advanced pediatric cardiopulmonary resusitation (under 8 years) and 100 medical students enrolled in undergraduate training. Results were analyzed using the software SPSS 15.
Results: The interns' advanced awareness was significantly less than the basic knowledge (P-Value < 0.001). The awareness of students who studied in CPR was higher than students who did not (P-Value < 0.027). Moreover, students who participated in the rehabilitation of children were more aware (P-Value < 0.002) and interns who attended the Heart Ward had a higher level of awareness (P-Value < 0.001).
Conclusion: In general, results obtained from the interns' awareness in the present showed the importance of pediatric resuscitation training courses and participation in resuscitation operations. So, this training course should be considered as a training strategy course in the internship program.
