 en The Level of Awareness of Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Amongst Radiographers in Nigeria
Edomwonyi, N. P. & Egbagbe, E.E.

Abstract

Resuscitation is one of the most evolving areas of modern medicine. For the past forty years newer techniques are developed in order to improve the outcome of resuscitation. The study is aimed at finding the level of knowledge amongst radiographers practising in Nigeria because radiographers use materials that commonly cause reactions requiring resuscitation. In an Annual conference of the Nigerian Radiographers held in Benin City, questionnaires were administered to eighty participants. Data extracted included age, gender, years of experience in practice and questions relating to resuscitation
Forty-five participants completed the questionnaires. 69% (31) had witnessed cardiac arrest. 80% (36) of them mentioned the causes of cardiac arrest, while 87% (39) mentioned different types of resuscitation drugs. All the respondents mentioned the adverse reactions associated with the use of intravascular contrast media (ICM). Awareness of CPR amongst the observed Nigerian radiographers is rated high as evidenced by this study.
