CPR is a basic, life-saving ability for health care experts in emergency departments and different fitness care settings. Although scientific results or Cardiopulmonary resuscitation relies upon on more than one factor, together with the preliminary situation of the patient, and the period of the cardiac arrest, acting extraordinary CPR drastically improves patient’s results. Objective:
1.to studies the awareness on basic life support in undergraduate and postgraduate paramedical students 2. Increase public familiarity with CPR for the drawn-out advantage of the local area 3. Recognition, avoidance, and powerful administration of life-threatening crises are the obligation of health care professionals Methods:
This study was prospective, comparative & questionnaire based designed and carried out among paramedical students of College of Paramedical Sciences at (TMU) Teerthanker Mahaveer University Moradabad. Knowledge about CPR of postgraduate, undergraduate and diploma students, from three departments’ i.e. radiological imaging techniques, medical lab techniques and optometry were compared. The project was approved by the college review committee Results:
Out of total 600 participants was 263 filled the questionnaire which was students of paramedical colleges of three various departments’ i.e. radiological imaging techniques, medical lab techniques and optometry fill the questionnaire. There were 51% students of radiological imaging techniques and 27% students of medical lab techniques and 22% students of optometry department. Out of overall responses recorded, radiological imaging techniques responded to 63% right answer and medical lab techniques recorded to 49% right answer and optometry recorded 50% right answer. According to data the knowledge about BLS among the students of radiological imaging techniques are greater than two rest courses i. e medical lab techniques and optometry department. Conclusion:
From our study we presume that absence of awareness in regards to Basic Life Support/Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation among paramedical understudies is a difficult issue that should be tended to immediately. This poll review showed that exceptional CPR abilities in paramedical understudies were inadequate, which could be improved by very much planned affirmed preparing programs.
