To evaluate the types of questions and the quality of Internet information regarding basic life support (BLS) in the general public.
We identified the questions and answers by entering the following keywords into the famous Korean search engine, Naver, in the year 2015: ‘Basic life support’, ‘chest compression’, ‘rescue breath’, ‘defibrillation’, ‘cardiac arrest’, and ‘airway obstruction’. A total of 269 cases were identified. We classified the questions into one of 17 subgroups. The accuracy of answers was analyzed based on the contents of the 2010 American Heart Association Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Guidelines. The reliability of the answers was analyzed by the health on the net foundation code of conduct (authoritative, attribution, transparency).
The most frequently asked question was about ‘when do I perform BLS?’. The second is ‘chest compression technique’, and third is ‘how to do BLS’. In assessing the accuracy of answers, 196 answers (72.9%) were determined to be correct. However, the reliability of answers was relatively low, except author’s transparency (80.7%); authoritative is 49.4% and attribution is only 16.4%.
The most common question for the general public was when to perform BLS. Other questions were ‘how to perform BLS’ or questions regarding chest compression techniques as well as issues regarding female patient and legal problem. This result can be used to educate the public on BLS. According to our results, the accuracy of the information regarding BLS is moderate, but reliability is not acceptable. The quality of BLS information on the Internet should be managed at an expert level.
