The aim of this study was to determine the success rate of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in emergency department and wards of educational hospitals in Zahedan and to help improve the effective conditions and arrangements in hospitals to increase the success of cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, from September 2016 to March 2017, 199 patients who suffered from cardio-pulmonary arrest and underwent CPR from emergency department and wards of hospitals affiliated to Zahedan University of Medical Sciences were evaluated by available method. Data were collected through using a researcher-made checklist and analyzed by SPSS software. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data.
Results: The mean age of patients was 43 years. The underlying causes associated with internal diseases with the prevalence of23.6% were at the top of the table for the cause of cardio-pulmonary arrest. Also, 37.7% of the resuscitation was successful. No significant relationship was found between the cause of cardiopulmonary arrest and CPR. Finally, four percent of the people were discharged from the hospital alive.
Conclusion: According to the findings, there was no significant relationship between the underlying causes of the cardio-pulmonary arrest and the outcome of CPR. Also, the success rate of CPR in hospitals under study was high compared to other studies conducted in the country, but a considerable percentage of the patients under study died.
