Aims:The performance of psychomotors is very important for handling the cardiac arrests. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of capnography’s feedback during cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the psychomotor’s performance of Rescuers.
Materials & Methods: This is a semi-experimental study with the aim of pre/post evaluation of the Ghaem hospital’s resuscitation team in Mashhad-Iran during 2014-2015.The functional data was collected via the skill resuscitation checklist. First of all, chest compression and ventilation rate were studied for normal resuscitation method and then, the method of using capnography based on its feedback taught to team members. Resuscitation team used it for 1 month in resuscitation cases. Finally, the psychomotor performance of rescuers evaluated.
Findings: There was a significant difference between the mean number of chest compression and ventilation rate of rescuers before and after the intervention (p<0.001) and the number of chest compression and ventilations were improved after using capnography feedback and get closer to the standards.
Conclusion: Capnography feedback improves performance of rescuers. Therefore, it is recommended to use it in resuscitation.
