Basic life support training is a part of the curricula of medical school in Anesthesiology practice. Every effort should be made to improve proper mouth-to-mouth breathing and perform correct extemal chest compression. Skillmeter Resusci(TM) Anne (Laerdal(R), Finland) is known to be an extremely valuable aid for accurate and objective training of medical students and for evaluating their performance. Fiftytwo medical students have been trained in basic life support skills and have been evaluated with Skillmeter Resusci Anne. We adopted standards by American Heart Association. As other reports, trainees' outcome was related to psychosomatic skill rather than their knowledge or clinical experience. Repeated training improves the performance capability of artificial ventilation better than external chest compression. At least 6 times of training session seemed required for over ninety percents of the students to reach the desired level of competence in these skills. In summary, a state-of-the-art resuscitaion training manikin displayed an objective individual evaluation and also aroused the interest of the students in CPR basic life support teaching.
