Abstract: 

Purpose: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an important step for patient survival inside and outside the hospital. Therefore, the results of CPR can be effective in modifying the structure of this operation and in eliminating its shortcomings. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the success rate of CPR in intensive care unit of an Iran’s Army Air Force hospital in 2012.
Materials and Methods: Different preset forms were used to collect data from the record of doctors and nurses’ report. Then, these data were transferred into a questionnaire that had been prepared for this purpose. The success criteria of the CPR were the return of cardiac and vital signs recorded through electrocardiography monitoring and also peripheral and central pulse palpation and hemodynamic stability for 24 hours.
Results: From among 185 studied patients, 36.7% were women and 63.2% were men. CPR success rate was 17.2%. CPR success rates in men and younger patients were more prevalent. Among the diseases, patients diagnosed with cerebrovascular accident were reported to have the most success rates in resuscitation.
Conclusion: Although this study and other similar studies have reported higher success rates for resuscitation in men, in younger ages, and patients with a primary diagnosis of cerebrovascular accident irrespective of other factors, carrying out more precise studies is recommended, especially on the effects of intensity of problems and underlying diseases at the time of admission on the success rate of CPR.
