Cardiac arrest, (is also known as circulatory arrest) is the cessation of normal circulation of the blood due to failure of the heart to contract effectively. Arrested blood circulation prevents delivery of oxygen to the body. Lack of oxygen to the brain causes loss of consciousness, which then result in abnormal or absent breathing. When unexpected cardiac arrest leads to death this is called sudden cardiac death. The treatment for cardiac arrest is cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to provide circulatory support. The aim of this narrative review is to find information on the effectiveness of simulation in terms of knowledge and skill regarding basic life support among non-medical faculty (participants). Intervention-Simulation on Basic life support method was used in the study. Quasi experimental study with skill lab of College was used in the study. This narrative review result has appeared that simulation will be effective for acquiring knowledge and skills on basic life support.
