Unexpected cardiac arrest sometimes leads to death almost immediately; this is called sudden cardiac death. The treatment for cardiac arrest is CPR to provide circulatory support, followed by defibrillation if a shockable rhythm is present. The research designed adopted was pre experimental one group pre-test post-test design. A total of 50 staff nurses were selected by non convenient sampling method. A structured knowledge Questionnaire and Observational checklist were prepared to assess the knowledge and knowledge on practice of the samples. The tools were developed by reviewing the extensive literature on revised protocol on CPR. Reliability of Structured knowledge Questionnaire and Observational checklist were ascertained by using test retest method.
