Objective: To evaluate the quality of the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skill of undergraduate students of the current educational program.Methods: The participants were 68 university students from the second year to the fourth year in physical therapy education. The indicators associated with chest compression and ventilation were quantitatively measured by an adult CPR training manikin.Results: For many students, the depth of chest compression was insufficient and the rate of chest compression was too fast. Additionally, there were differences in the depth of chest compression and chest wall recoil between male and female students. The volume of ventilation indicated a large interindividual and intraindividual variability.Conclusions: Regular re-training is required to perform high-quality CPR. The development of a training method that does not require an instructor and that allows the maintenance of CPR skills for a prolonged period is required.
