Importance of Conclusion
Findings suggest a computer-based learning course with voice-activated
manikins is a more effective method of training for improved CPR performance than instructor-led courses.
- BLS instructors who teach in the traditional classroom setting are challenged with reliably validating the psychomotor skills of participants.
- Using feedback devices as an adjunct to CPR skill training can improve immediate skills performance.
- Students who used audiovisual feedback prompts performed with significantly better chest compressions than the instructor-led group both immediately and at 6 weeks after initial instruction.
- Results suggest that the voice-activated manikin may be more effective for correcting skills performance than the feedback provided by instructors during instructor-led BLS courses.
