First aid in a short time is the key to saving lives. As undergraduates step into society, they should have enough ability to save others. As a result, first aid knowledge and training are essential for them.
To investigate the cognition level of the first aid knowledge among undergraduates, and to improve the training for undergraduates.
A questionnaire was designed for this study. It includes the basic information of the test subjects, attitude towards first aid, level of first aid knowledge, etc. The subjects of the questionnaire were mainly undergraduates in Sichuan province.
There were 302 valid questionnaires. The percent correct of the first aid basic knowledge quiz was only 47.62%. Using Chi-Square tests to analyze, medical education can make a significant difference in the level of first aid knowledge. (Chi-Square=251.004, P<0.01) Additionally, 78.81% of undergraduates thought it was significant to learn and master first aid knowledge, and the most common way to learn first aid knowledge was through university (81.46%).
Universities should strengthen the training for undergraduates to improve their first aid skills. This is a feasible approach to promote a public level of first aid knowledge.
