[The aim of the presented study is to monitor the effectiveness of BLS, to investigate its effectiveness in laymen’s groups, and to compare whether non-instructional or T-CPR is more effective.
Our quantitative, cross -section study was conducted on the open day of 112 Call Center in Szombathely. The target group consisted of visiting lay people who signed a statement of consent to process their observation results (n = 19). Descriptive statistics were calculated using IBM SPSS for Windows 22.0 and Fisher-exact test and independent samples T-test (p <0.05).
In the case of chest compressions, all parameters examined were more effective during manual resuscitation with telephone instruction. Without instructions, it takes an average of 12 sec. from the rescue call to start the compression, in the situation where instruction takes an average of 1 m. 25 sec.
Our results suggest that T-CPR takes longer to complete chest compressions than non-instructed cases, but overall, chest compressions are more effective.
