Background: Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an important predictor of out-of-hospital arrest prognosis in the pediatric population. The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of two educational methods, a video module and Peyton model with manikin, in parent's education. Materials and Methods: We enrolled 140 subjects, 70 in each group. We assess their knowledge, attitude, and practice about pediatric basic life support (BLS) before and after two different types of educational interventions. Results: Mean attitude, knowledge, and practice score were significantly higher after educational intervention in both groups. Knowledge and total practice score were significantly higher in the Peyton group compared with DVD group (P = 0.02 and 0.000, respectively). The rate of totally correct chest compression was 53% in Peyton/manikin group versus 24% in DVD/lecture group and the difference was meaningful statistically (P = 0.0003). Conclusion: Any educational intervention has a significant effect on the Iranian parent's knowledge and practice about child BLS, but education through manikin can increase this impact.
