I learned this in Boy Scouts 30 years ago-I never knew you could get a research grant for it!

Warning: If the revived individual begins speaking how Barry Gibb sings, you were actually performing CPR on his testicles. Please use more caution next time.

On the beat or the backbeat?
 
2008-10-16 11:06:20 AM  
Yeah, I learned it to "Another One Bites The Dust." I think that's far funnier than "Stayin' Alive"... you know.. unless you're doing it on your grandfather or something...

If you've never been in the situation, prepare yourself. Never know when your boss is going to keel over and turn 10 different shades of blue and gray.

Been there, done that, got a safety award for it, don't want to do it again.

Way to pick a 30 year old song that people forget as an example, CPR guys. At least pick something with some staying power, like maybe Superman that Ho or a cut off the new Young Jeezy record.

Well you can tell by the way I'm on the floor
My heart has stopped: don't beat no more

Fellas, I'm ready to get up and do my thang. I want to get into it man, you know? Like a, like a sex machine, man? Movin,' doin' it, y'know? Can I count it off? One-two-three-four!

"Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" by Daft Punk works too.

I have an arrhythmia. If anyone ever needs to do CPR on me, a polyrhythmic or Calypso beat is most appropriate. Thanks in advance.

Since most ambulance drivers are secretly goth kids, why not go with some nine inch nails? "Down In It" is close enough at 103 bpm.
 
2008-10-16 11:11:20 AM  
And today I have learned something useful on FARK. Good start to the day.
 
2008-10-16 11:11:46 AM  
I'm requesting "Take Five" for my CPR. No medical reason, I just think it would be a nice song to die to.

30 yrs ago the Boy Scouts taught respiration too. You might want to get re-certified for CPR, old timer.

Does your heart beat in 5/4 time? You could also use "Four Sticks" by Zeppelin.

After my first DOA as an EMT, my partner and I went back to the ambulance to wait for the meat wagon and turned the radio on. Next song, "Another One Bites the Dust." Kind of loosened the mood and burden of losing someone.

LOL yup :)

Seriously, though, the aneurysm won that fight. The docs all said we did the job good, blood and oxygen were flowing, but nothing was going to fix the hole in his brain.

worked with the assistant county coroner in Lancaster for a while, her ring tone was Another One Bites the Dust when she had a phone call about her Coroner Duties.

Yeah, but that song samples from the 70s song "Cola Bottle Baby" by Edwin Birdsong.

On another topic, this headline would look good on a t-shirt. It's funny AND informative.

Yikes. :-( Good on you for making the effort, though. (no snark here)

I prefer the tempo of Metallica's "One." Start off slowly, and if that doesn't work, go completely apeshiat.
 
2008-10-16 11:32:34 AM  
Jestergirl! Ever notice they sped that song way up for the Airplane! sequence? Do we use the regular version for CPR or the fast one?

I actually have done that....but good reminder for any of us "old timers". They also advised us to pull the horse and buggy to the side of the road before attempting CPR.

"Ambulance drivers"? What part of the country do you live in? 1973?

Damn. I've been using Bolt Thrower's 'Drowned in Torment' down at the old folks home.
