Introduction: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is one of the most basic and vital skills that a person should learn throughout his life. Carrying out this action is so essential and life-saving that knowing and doing it correctly means saving a human life. One of the target groups for teaching CPR and basic resuscitation skills, is teachers, especially physical education teachers, due to the possibility of heart failure during sports activities in children. In this study, we investigated the level of knowledge of Basic Life Support (BLS) in physical education teachers of Kashan schools in 2023.
Materials and methods: The current study is a cross-sectional study that was conducted on all the physical education teachers of Kashan schools who were willing to participate in the study (n=80). The requirement for entering the study was attending schools in the last year. In this study, demographic information, including age, sex, was asked from the participants by interviewers and recorded in the checklist. Then, the participants were asked to complete a standard questionnaire related to the level of BLS knowledge.
Results: The number of men was slightly higher than that of women. The average age of the participants was 40.24 ± 8.05 years. 78.8% of the participants admitted that they had received training in in BLS, and 50.8% of them were trained in the university before graduation. The average score of participants' knowledge in the field of CPR was 3.95±1.69. Among the variables of gender, age, educational level of coaching, duration of coaching and receiving BLS training, the level of CPR knowledge was found to have a significant relationship with the age variable (P=0.03). The fear of doing it wrong was reported to be the most worrying issue for performing resuscitation measures. Also, 60% of the participants admitted that they have no knowledge about the defibrillator device and only one person knew how to use the defibrillator and where it is located in the patient's body.
Conclusion: The level of knowledge of Basic Life Support in the physical education teachers of Kashan schools is reported to be lower than the average level, and according to the findings of this study, it is recommended to hold training courses for them periodically to increase their knowledge.
