ABSTRACT

A statistical study was performed to evaluate and analyze the awareness of the students at Majmmah university about the basic life support (BLS). A questionnaire model of 20 questions covering the basic points of the subject was distributed over the students, and 3 questions covering the attitudes of the students. A total number of 219 students including 13% internship, 37% clinical phase and 50% basic science academic students was participated in this cross-section study. The responses of the students have been collected and analyzed using the appropriate statistical methods. It has been shown that the internship students have the maximum awareness about the BLS in comparison of the other students. More than 60% of those students could give the correct answers of the questionnaire model questions. While, the clinical phase and basic science students have the lowest awareness about the BLS. Only 28% and 25% of the clinical phase and basic students, respectively, could give the correct answer of the questionnaire model. It has been also shown that question number 12, 8, and 10 were the most difficult questions for the internship, clinical phase, and basic science students, respectively. A satisfactory limit could be statistically estimated as the general average of all the performance calculated for all the participating students. It has been shown that the awareness of both the clinical phase and basic students were below this limit in most of the questions included in the questionnaire model. This could indicate to poor awareness for those students about the BLS. It has been also shown that the students who had BLS practical training have got the highest awareness about BLS. On the other hand, the students who did not have BLS practice training have got unsatisfactory awareness about BLS. Therefore, it is highly recommended to provide practical training courses to the students and to the public.
