To evaluate the training effectiveness improvements of CPR skills by using monitor/defibrillator with Q-CPR feedback in undergraduate medical students.
Seventy-two medical students(the fourth year of the 8-year) in the emergency department were enrolled in this study. Thirty-two students were training by using monitor/defibrillator with Q-PCR feedback and assigned into experimental group, whereas the other 40 students were assigned into control group and trained with traditional lecture and demonstrating. Knowledge test, skill performance and personal satisfaction assessment of the course were applied to evaluate the training effectiveness.
Scores of skill performance and personal satisfaction assessment in the experimental group were higher than those in the control group; Quality evaluation in chest compression, ventilation and defibrillation were improved in both groups, whereas performance improvement in chest compression in experimental group was significantly better than that in control group.
Monitor/defibrillator with Q-CPR feedback is a useful tool in improving precise performance of basic life support skills in CPR training for medical students.
