Brief Summary in Lay Language

The primary goal of the study is to objectify the quality of BLS performed by first year residents and the evaluation of their preparedness achieved through medical school do deal with in house emergencies.

First year residents will be asked to enter a patient room and perform cardiopulmonary resucitation for at least 10 minutes on an ALS-simulator representing a patient requiring CPR. During CPR, the data concerning CPR such as thoracic compression rate, pressure point, as well as effectiveness of breathing support will be analized in accordance to current basic life support guidelines. After the CPR scenario, subjects will be asked to complete a questionair to record prior CPR training and self-evaluation of performance during the scenario.

Thus, the goal of CPR and questionaire analization is to objectify the cardiopulmonary resuscitation quality of first year residents. Hypothesis is that first year residents are unable to perform proper CPR and the lack of emergency skill development during medical school attendence is a major cause for this.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Current literature does not yield much information concerning the objective evaluation of the preparation of first year residents through medical school for in house medical emergencies. Because these young physicians are prone to be confronted with in house medical emergencies through their often independent medical practise positions, the presented study aims to evaluate BLS quality of first year residents.
Anonymized data of BLS performance will be collected during a simulated medical emergency dealing with a CPR-dependend patient, simulated by an Ambu ALS-Manikin. Additionally, previous medical training with relevance to emergency competence and a self-evaluation of the BLS performance will be analized.
Thus, factors influencing BLS quality are to be identified in addition to BLS relevant parameters, which in turn could lead to the improvement of emergency preparedness in first year residents.
