While telephone-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (T-CPR) is crucial for improving the chances of survival during cardiac arrest, there is limited information available on the effectiveness of T-CPR when administered by laypeople, especially those who are unfamiliar with these procedures. Therefore, we assessed the influence of basic life support and defibrillation (BLSD) training on the proficiency of T-CPR carried out by volunteer medical students participating in a BLSD course, using a simulated cardiac arrest scenario. The quality of T-CPR maneuvers was compared before and after the BLSD course. The results highlight the positive impact of BLSD training, significantly enhancing the quality of T-CPR and bringing it close to optimal levels.

Abstract

While telephone-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (T-CPR) is crucial for improving the chances of survival during cardiac arrest, there is limited information available on the effectiveness of T-CPR when administered by laypeople, especially those who are unfamiliar with these procedures. Therefore, we assessed the influence of basic life support and defibrillation (BLSD) training on the proficiency of T-CPR carried out by volunteer medical students participating in a BLSD course, using a simulated cardiac arrest scenario. The quality of T-CPR maneuvers was compared before and after the BLSD course. The results highlight the positive impact of BLSD training, significantly enhancing the quality of T-CPR and bringing it close to optimal levels.
