Background and purpose: Only correct and effective Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can increase the survival probability of patients with cardiopulmonary arrest. Therefore, assessing and controlling the CPR performance is of great importance. The aim of this study was to determine the CPR skills and knowledge of medical students in Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences. Materials and methods: Eighty students of medicine in their internship participated in the study. Theoretical knowledge of students on CRP was assessed through a questionnaire. Then all the subjects performed CPR on a resuscitation manikin. To analyze the data t-test and ANOVA were done in SPSS ver.16 Results: None of the participants was completely competent in performing CPR. Among the students 32 (40%) believed emergency medicine courses as the best resource for proper learning of CPR. Thirty eight (47%) participants stated their level of proficiency in CRP as preliminary while the study showed poor theoretical knowledge among 50% of the subjects. Conclusion: This study underscores the necessity of compulsory CPR trainings for all medical students and re-assessment of their CPR skills. Moreover, establishing new strategies for CPR education should be taken into account.
