Abstract

Aim. To test the assumption that if an explanation about a resuscitation policy is understood by a la-year-old then it will be understood by an adultpatient. Method. The comprehension of a paragraph about resuscitation by inpatientswas compared to the comprehension of the same paragraph by 12-year-old schoolchildren. Results. The schoolchildren demonstrated better comprehension of a paragraph about resuscitation than the inpatients (p = 0.02). Conclusions. Schoolchildren, aged 12, in a classroom setting show better comprehension than adult medical and surgical impatients. This has implications about giving information to patients and seeking consent from them. Persons giving information to patients need to ensure the patients have understood it.
