DOI : 10.31067/0.2020.300 Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the suitability of Turkish CPR YouTube videos with 2015 AHA guidelines.

Material and method: Data related to this descriptive study were collected between 15 August-15 October 2018 by researchers. YouTube search engine was searched for the keywords " cardiopulmonary resuscitation", "basic life support", "cardiac massage". Videos applicable for research criteria were included in this study and were evaluated for visuality and content. Data were evaluated using SPSS 20.0, results were given in numbers and percentages.

Results: Most of the videos included information on checking the response of the patient (81.6%) calling emergency help (73.7%). However, 73.7% of the videos did not include the information on the CAB order. Sixty-three point two percent (63.2%) of the CPR videos were presented by health care staff; more than half of them were not able to maintain attention. The main duration of the videos was calculated as 5.85 minutes (SD: 4.35)

Conclusion: CPR is an effective procedure for individuals with respiratory and cardiac arrest. If it is done sufficiently, it can reduce mortality and morbidity rates. Since doing CPR is a practice that requires both certain knowledge and skills; not using the related knowledge and the skills could raise some concerns both for the patient and for practitioners. According to the results of this study, it was determined that up to date, trustworthy and useful YouTube videos related to CPR are very limited on Turkish websites.
