Effective training in CPR is important for medical personnel and the public and a variety of educational methods have been used. We compared the results of the two most common CPR teaching methods, video-based and Instructorled teaching, with particular emphasis on the effects of supervised practice by an instructor.
Sixty college students who had never been taught CPR were divided into 2 groups of 30. One group was given a 30-minute lecture using slides and the other watched the 30-minute CPR Anytime DVD. Afterwards, all participants were tested on the Mini Anne manikin. All students were re-tested after 30 minutes of practice under the supervision of an instructor.
The only statistically significant difference between the two groups was an increased accuracy in breath delivery in the DVD group before the instructor supervised practice. There were no statistically significant differences between the 2 groups after the instructor supervised practice.
Self practice via DVD was relatively more effective than the theory lecture. However, the effect of the education significantly increased with instructor's participation and the difference between teaching methods was insignificant.
