Introduction: Using videos seems to be a good option to share cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) techniques. Aim: Our aim was to evaluate the learning effect of viewing a video about why and how to do CPR in young footballers, as well as on how to use an automatic external defibrillator. Material and methods: A prospective, analytical and observational study was conducted that included 65 young footballers (aged between 12 and 33 years old). First of all, basic life support knowledge was assessed using a questionnaire. After that, a video made ad hoc for this study was shared on the social media for a week. Then, 52 of the participants were split into the experimental group (who watched the video), and a control group. Both groups were evaluated using a standardised test scenario. Results: Fifty five per cent of the sample did not have sufficient knowledge, and 81% said that they did not know how to use an automatic external defibrillator. After the video release, a statistical difference was found between both groups in terms of airway opening, depth and correct compressions, thus improving overall CPR quality. The mean time to deliver an effective shock with the automatic external defibrillator was 85 seconds. Conclusion: In conclusion, watching a brief video improves the responsiveness in a cardiac arrest and the CPR quality.
