Comparison of Willingness to Perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation between Video Self-Instruction and Conventional Method


Objectives: The purpose of the study is to compare the effect of traditional face-to-face Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training to the video self-instruction method and to improve layperson training and cost savings. Methods/Statistical analysis: In a randomized controlled study following the control group design, a self-led video training group received 30 minutes of video instruction while a traditional training group received 30 minutes of conventional classroom instruction. Data were drawn from pre- and posttest structured group interviews and posttest CRP performance scores using Laerdal Skill Reporter™ manikins. Analysis of covariance was employed to verify the effect of video and traditional training on the willingness to perform CPR. Findings: The video training group (131.6) exhibited a statistically significant (p<.001) acceleration in compression speed over the traditional group (117.1), with the video group showing a statistically significant lower compression correctness rate (38.6) compared to the traditional group (59.7). Further statistically significant differences (p=.008; .002; .006) between the video training group and the traditional face-to-face group includes lower scores in CPR willingness (1.9:2.8), knowledge (3.1:3.7) and performance (3.0:3.4) in the video group compared to the traditional group. Improvements/Applications: Under identical conditions, training using video selfinstruction has a smaller effect on the willingness to perform CPR compared to traditional classroom instruction.
