That's what I thought too. I thought the new rules were "Stayin' Alive or Another One Bites the Dust to your personal taste. Don't do breathing."

Before reading, my thoughts: Hmm. Must related to bpm. If they suggest another one bites, the target is around. . . What. . . 120 beats?? (I did a rough guess in my head)

Reads article: eh, I was close.

When I learned CPR they were just phasing out breathing. But the songs are right. 100 BPM, if I remember correctly.
 
2013-06-27 04:27:55 PM
Both that and Staying Alive, yes. The Paramedic that taught us CPR for our first aid course actually took one the the compression dummies that's got a sensor built into it, and tested this themselves. It was pretty much perfect.

I always use "Another one bites the dust" for all of my attempts.

That, and me keeping my mouth shut as I act like I'm breathing for them.

If Darwin wanted them to live, he would have something.

I usually start out all "Cotton Eye Joe" and then move on to "staying alive".  After that I move into "closer" and if they don't come back at that point, I have probably managed to have a heart attack myself.

Both work.   It is the 100bpm rithm that matters.  Both "staying alive" and "another one bites the dust" are about 100bpm.  They feature that on Radiolab back in 2009.

According the the AHA and Ken Jeong, it's Staying Alive.
 
2013-06-27 04:39:40 PM
Yeah, I always heard it was "Stayin' Alive," which might become a problem as Disco fades in people's memory like the Holocaust. Where are today's CPR beats?

If I had bothered to page through the ad-fest with incidental slide show I might know.

I really need to go back and get re-certified, it's been years....but we were taught to compress to Cecilia and Sweet Home Alabama.

I have just done my first aid exams two weeks ago, so I'm... shaking my head in disbelief.

The trick that worked for me is counting every second push and keep the rhythm of counting at around one per second.

/I know the driving license training is genuinely farked up in the US, are first aid exams even mandatory?

Mandatory for what?  Getting a driver's license?  Lord no, they just make sure you aren't blind and/or illiterate and send you on your merry way.

/ mostly true, except for the merry part

There are free CPR metronome apps for your phone that can set you to 100 bpm.  You click the button for the app and it will beep at you 100 beats per minute.

Way, way easier than trying to keep a song in your head when you do CPR.

So actually, the next cool thing really  is CCR, aka "cardio cerebral resuscitation".   Our ambulance service is approved to use this protocol instead of CPR in a cardiac arrest.   And our save rate is over 40%, which is very high.

YoOjo: CPR Kills people.
I am serious, doctors don't want CPR


Wow...you suck at context more than a Fox video editor at the DNC.

Doctors don't want to have CPR done ON THEM if they are in cardiac arrest from a NON-traumatic illness (like old age or a terminal disease) because it's only designed to be used in acute situations where the heart stopped suddenly but the body is otherwise functioning (heart attack, drowning, etc.)  Reason is that it doesn't work half of the time and the odds of having brain damage from oxygen deprivation are high, and they don't want to become vegetables after battling ALS for 20 years or something.  if they hit their head ona diving board and go into arrest, you can rest assured they'd like you to start pumping.

CPR doesn't "kill" people any more than airbags or seatbelts "kill" people.  It's a question of the odds.  99% of the time the seatbelt will help you, not hurt you, so you wear it.  More often than not CPR will help a person (or at least not make them any worse), so you should do it for all sudden heart stoppages not caused by long-term declining illness.

Experienced classical musicians are often great memorizers of beats-per-minute metronome marks; some typical benchmarks are:

160 bpm = William Tell Overture
120 bpm = The Stars and Stripes Forever (not hurried)
80-90 bpm = Typical processional "graduation" march
60 bpm = Think Stars and Stripes, every other beat

On the vintage jazz/swing side of things, here's pianist Teddy Wilson in concert in the 1960s, with his bassist Jim Atlas pumping out quarter notes at the rate of about 332/min:

That's not how I heard it, I think it was on the Freakonomics podcast but may have been any of the others I listen to. They said that doctors DNR for several reasons, one of which is that during CPR the ribs often puncture the chest/lungs/other crap inside there.
I'm not a doctor, not an expert, just a Jo on a website banging my drum, but as much as I don't value human life and am not afraid to express that opinion I think you'll find I don't lower the tone by calling people names or telling them they suck because I disagree with them.
Our mileage obviously varies, that's good, life is more interesting with variety. Just let go of some of your anger though, if you would kind Sir :-)

Breathing is allowed depending on qualification level.  Whatever level they teach fire, as well as EMS/healthcare provider, include breathing...  as well as AED.
