Abstract
Objective: This study aimed to assess the knowledge of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) of pregnantwomen among residents of anesthesia in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted among residents of anesthesia from R1 to R5, who were under training in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, during the study period from October 2023 to April 2024. The sample included 150 participants, which constituted 65.7% of the total residents of anesthesia in Riyadh.
Results: The study sample comprised 150 residents, with a mean age of 28.4 ± 7.8, and 56.7% were men. Furthermore, 32% of the participants were level 1 residents, making up the majority. Around 76% of the participants completed CPR training in the previous year. Of the centers offering CPR classes, King Khalid University Hospital was the most common (27.3%). Of the participants, 41.3% strongly agreed, 38% agreed, and 8.7% disagreed that more CPR training is required for pregnant women who experienced cardiac arrest. The highest mean score on the evaluation scale was 3.9 ± 0.92 for airway management competency, while the lowest mean score was 2.6 ± 0.93 for overall pregnant CPR competency. Gender, residence levels, and training center all had a significant correlation with the total level of knowledge, with p-values of 0.017, 0.000, and 0.001, respectively.
Conclusion: The research shows that residents did not know enough about the fundamentals of CPR for pregnant women. It was believed that all anesthesia residents should get specialized CPR certification, with an emphasis on the unique concerns that affect pregnant women.

Key words: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, pregnant women, knowledge, anesthesia residents, Saudi Arabia
