The aim of this study was to describe the knowledge and experience of nurses in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. We interviewed 16 nurses from Faculty Anhanguera that completed a questionnaire consisting of information on the variables of interest in caring for patients to cardiorespiratory arrest. The results showed that 68. 75% of respondents reported knowing the new protocol from the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), demonstrating to be able to define cardiac arrest and to identify its primary objective in attendance (73%) and sequential order of diagnostic procedures (74%). We conclude that the sample studied, theoretical knowledge on cardiopulmonary resuscitation was appropriate and in accordance with the recommendations of the guidelines of the new protocol.
