Dear editor,

This letter is in response to the letter to the editor submitted titled “lack of CPR knowledge among young medical doctors: a worldwide issue.”

It is encouraging to observe that globally researchers are thinking in the same line as we are. It is also interesting to note that the results in our study are comparable to those by the European group.1

In the light of new discussions, I would like to highlight few points from our study2
