Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Aim: Cardiac arrest in pregnancy is one of the most challenging clinical scenarios. Correct intervention plays a crucial role in increasing the chance of survival of both the baby and the mother. In this study we aimed to evaluate knowledge about resuscitation of parturients among anesthesiologists.
Materials and Methods: A total of 356 anesthesiologists (162 anesthesiology residents, 146 anesthesiology specialists and 48 faculty member) were included in the study. The subjects of the study population were chosen among the anesthesiologists with various levels of experience who attended to national anesthesia meetings that were held from January 2015 to December 2015 in Turkey. The assessment was based on a questionnaire containing 10 questions and questions were designed to draw out knowledge deficiencies in critical areas of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in parturients.
Results: There was a significant correlation between the age and the total score (r=0.198 / p=0.000). Concerning the effect of the occupational title, we found that the total score of the specialist group was significantly higher than that of the resident group (p=0.001). There was no correlation between the total score and having a CPR experience in parturients.
Conclusion: The results of our study indicate that there is a lack of knowledge about the CPR in parturients in Turkey. Therefore education programs about the management of cardiac arrest and CPR in parturients should be planned and repeated on a regular basis.

Keywords: Anesthesiologists’ knowledge; Cardiopulmonary resuscitation; parturients
