Introduction: The process of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an immediate action toprevent or delay cardiopulmonary arrest. This study was done to find out the success rate of CPR and its relationship with the working shift of the personnel in emergency unit and the wards. Material and Methods: In this analytical and cross-sectional study in 2016, 199 patients whom with cardio-pulmonary arrest in emergency unit and wards of Ali-ibn-AbiTalib and Khatam-al-anbia hospitals of Zahedan undergone (CPR), were investigated. Then, patients' information was collected through researcher-made checklist and eventually, SPSS software was used for data analysis. Data analysis was done by using descriptive statistics and Chi-square and T-tests. Results: 36.7 percent of CPRs was successful. According to the findings, the average of patients' age was 43.6 years old. Also 50.3 of the subjects were male. 41.2 of CPR cases were done in the morning shift which didn't have a significant relationship with the outcome of CPR (P=0.72). Also, 28.6 of total number of patients before CPR were intubed and 69.9 of the patients who undergone unsuccessful CPR were not intubed before resuscitation. Conclusion: The results of this study show that the success rate of CPR is almost higher than other studies. Although it was expected that the patient's intubation condition prior to CPR and the time interval between cardio-pulmonary arrest and the start of CPR would have an important impact on the outcome of CPR, but there was no significant relationship between them, it might have been because of the inaccurate registration of the available information in the projects; it is suggested that the related officials, should come up with the essential ideas to make sure that the personnel register the information accurately in the hospital to be used in further studies.
