History and Objectives: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a critical emergency measure that health personnel are encountered. Because of its unpredictability regarding time and place, it is necessary to have skilled personnel, especially inn emergency center. There are some reports on inappropriate skill and knowledge of health personnel in this field. Therefore, this study was carried out to determine level of knowledge and skill of health personnel in Kashan hospitals in 1999.

Materials and Methods: The descriptive strategy of this study was performed on medical and health personnel of Kashan hospitals. For this purpose, a 20-item questionnaire on resuscitation prepared. Personal skills for tracheal tubing and cardiac academic massage were evaluated and a scoring of appropriate, moderate and inappropriate was used. For statistical analysis Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney tests were used.

Results: This study was carried out on 93 individuals, 47 males and 46 females with average age of 30.2 years. The results showed that none of them had appropriate knowledge and 82% of them had in appropriate knowledge and there was a positive relationship between this parameter and their academic field (P<0.0001). In addition, 71% of them showed inappropriate skill and only 7.5% had appropriate skill. Meanwhile, interns, midwives and health-assistants had not appropriate skill. Medical techniques showed appropriate skill with a positive relationship with their academic field (P<0.02).
Conclusion and Recommendations: There is not enough skill and knowledge regarding cardiopulmonary resuscitation and it is necessary to hold appropriate re-educational programs.
