Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the life threatening conditions, and if not treated immediately and effectively death will occur within minutes. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is the most effective way to save lives of cardiac arrest patients. Studies showed a correlation between physical fitness and quality of CPR. The aim of this study was to compare the CPR skills of female and male physically active (PA) and physically inactive (PIA) undergraduate students. Of the 120 undergraduate students, 37.5% was physically active and 62.5% was physically inactive. The participants’ mean age 21.40±2.02 years. In order to identify physically active and physically inactive students, they were asked about their physical activity participation. Data on students’ CPR performance were collected via Laerdal Resusci Anne SkillReporterTM manikin. During the data collection (after training), each student was instructed to perform 10 sets of CPR in an isolated laboratory environment. Training included standard CPR content for the all participants. The results of this study showed that a physically active participants performed better CPR ventilation and compression skills than physically inactive participants did. Physically active female and male participants achieved the higher mean percentage of correct ventilation and chest compression. In conclusion, the findings suggest that the physical activity positively correlated with CPR quality.
