Title: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation training for university students of registered dietitian

Author(s): Hirohiko MOCHIZUKI M.D.

Institution where study was conducted: Department of Nutritional Management, Sagami Women’s University

Keywords: education, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, registered dietitian

Background: In these days, registered dietitians(RD) are working outside of office room, at not only around hospital, but also out-of-hospital. At the cases of swallowing disturbance, RD may assist dietary intake and choking or sudden deterioration could occur. In our university we have cardiopulmonary resuscitation(CPR) practical training since 2010, but such training is rare at Japanese university.

Objectives: In the present study, we examined efficacy and effectiveness of our CPR practical training.

Methods: After short lecture, CPR practical training was carried out with a CPR training model for each 3rd year student. In 2017, we made questionnaire research before and after the training. And follow-up questionnaire was made at students who attended the course last year.

Results: Most of students (86%) had some experience in CPR training, at high school, university and driving school. But bore training, only 70% of the students answered “yes” for cardiac compression, artificial breathing and AED. Moreover, only 7.7% answered “yes” for rescue of choking. After training, all of them answered “yes” for CPR methods and rescue of choking. Numbers of worrying problems on performing CPR are decreased from 2.7 to 1.3. At follow-up questionnaire, most students answered “yes” for CPR methods, but about rescue of choking it was only 20%.

Conclusion: As a medical care professional, RD should master the way of CRP and rescue of choking. In university for RD, such a practical training should be held before clinical training.
