Abstract: Since the introduction of the modern techniques for cardiopulmonary resuscitation, professionals have discussed the need to standardize its application and teaching both among health care professionals and the general public. The main aim of this study was to examine the training level, compression rate average, depression average and number of cycles in seven minutes in participants trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). As secondary objectives were to analyse the gender interaction with other variables, and to analyse the level of training on the correct execution of CPR. Research was conducted in a sample of fifty-two Spanish participants with training in CPR. There were no significant differences according to training level in terms of depressed sternum, compression rate average, depression average or compression depth average (P > 0.05). However, the number of cycles in seven minutes was higher in participants with training than in participants without training (P = 0.002). In conclusion, there were a low percentage of participants that offer optimal quality in the practice of CPR. It would be interesting to carry out simulation situations with mannequin as a practice and training.
