Background: Patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) due to their critical conditions are at life-threatening situations, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is one of the most commonly used treatments in this area. Physicians and staff working in this section should be familiar with the basic and advanced life support. This study aimed to assess the outcomes of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in patients with surgical and non-surgical diseases in ICU of Imam Khomeini hospital in Urmia City, Iran.Methods: In this cross-sectional study, the medical record of patients admitted to the ICU and underwent CPR during a 7-year period (2010-2016) were analyzed. Demographic characteristics, medicines used in the course of CPR, time of cardiopulmonary arrest, duration of CPR, and its outcome were extracted and analyzed.Findings: Of 6365 patients admitted to the ICU of Imam hospital in Urmia City, 728 (11.43%) had cardiac arrest and received CPR. Of 728 CPRs performed in the ICU, 117 cases (16.1%) were successful and 611 (83.9%) were unsuccessful. Out of 433 patients with non-surgical diseases, 52 (12%) had successful CPR, and out of 295 patients with surgical diseases, 65 (22%) had successful CPR (P = 0.001). There was a statistically significant difference between patients with non-surgical and surgical diseases in visible dysrhythmia (P = 0.001). The mean duration of CPR was 32.72 ± 9.90 and 33.02 ± 8.90 minutes in patients with non-surgical and surgical diseases, respectively (P = 0.600).
