PROLO, Leticia; PATINO, Virginia; MOLINA, Natalia  y  BELLO, Osvaldo. Autoevaluación de los pediatras en formación sobre reanimación cardiopulmonar. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.4, pp.269-275. ISSN 1688-1249.

Cardiac respiratory arrest in children is an unfrequent clinical event but of high risk, for that reason, getting a postgraduate qualification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a priority. Objective: evaluate the level of pediatrics postgraduates and residents regarding CPR, and relate it to the curricular year and work activity. Material and method: transverse descriptive study through a personal, anonymous survey to pediatrics postgraduates and residents. The form had 8 multiple choice questions; the topics were CPR basic and advanced. There was also a self-evaluation on training on pediatrics CPR, it’s level of safety, and the kind of working activity developed. The data was analized with the program EPI-INFO 2002. Results: 106 doctors were polled. 5,7% got more than 80% correct answers. There were no meaningful statistic differences in the quality of the answers when correlated to the year of training and the fact of having assisted to CPR courses. 34,9% of those polled work permanently in emergency or prehospital emergencies. Conclusion: the amount of knowledge and training when it comes to CPR in future pediatrics is far from the desired. Considering the results obtained it is necessary to emphasize the CPR theory practice training during the pediatrics postgraduate course.
