Understanding the Impact of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Training on Participants' Perceived Confidence Levels
Nordheim, Shawn M.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Northern Kentucky University
This pre-experimental, participatory action research study investigated the impact of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training on participants' perceived confidence and willingness to initiate CPR. Parents of seventh and eighth grade students were surveyed. Parent participants were asked to watch the American Heart Association's Family and Friend CPR Anytime training DVD. A pretest-posttest design was used to determine the differences in perceived confidence and willingness to initiate CPR before and after CPR training. The study used both descriptive and inferential statistics. The analysis of survey responses revealed: (1) Video-based self-instruction CPR training does increase perceived confidence in initiating CPR, (2) Knowing the victim and the presence of body fluid does have an impact on participants' expressed willingness to initiate CPR, and (3) CPR training increased the likelihood that CPR would be initiated in all scenarios with the greatest increase being with victims with body fluids on their face.
