A semi structured questionnaire was used to collect the data. The Idea of 'Peripheral Resuscitation Center' is supported by 86%. A total of 61% agreed Peripheral Resuscitation Center is practical alternate to training COLS and BCLS to everyone. 50% told Peripheral Resuscitation Center ensures scene safety. 82% agreed delay in resuscitation is decreased. 54% agreed CPR quality is improved and 62% agreed that increased effort of resuscitation is achieved. 57% agreed that other people got motivated to learn. 64% thought that training all citizens in developing countries in COLS and BCLS is impossible. 41% believe that any individual adequately trained can successfully run Peripheral Resuscitation Center and 36% believe Peripheral Resuscitation Center Needs Physician.The study implication may insist to establish the Peripheral Resuscitation Centre in all rural and urban areas of India and to train all medics and paramedics to improve the survival and after the trauma or cardiac arrest in patients from the outside the hospital.
