Abstract

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation should be known by all health workers. Advanced life support should be protocol driven and all first responders should be well trained in carrying this out. My aim in doing this audit was to assess the training and knowledge in a defined population of health workers. A three part questionnaire was designed by me and used for the purpose. The results revealed that most of the training has taken place while being a medical student, a better knowledge of cardio pulmonary resuscitation was shown by doctors who have had repeated training, the interns in the medical wards had a better knowledge than surgical interns, the interns were not following the protocol all the time and even though there was a regular weekly programme in the National hospital of Sri Lanka they were not attending the training programme

Key words: resuscitation; life support
