Another one bites the dust works best for CPR
 
2018-10-11 11:34:43 AM  
Who hasn't felt like breaking a few ribs the first time they caught Bieber's songs?
 
2018-10-11 11:49:57 AM  
So does Tame Impala
 
2018-10-11 11:56:49 AM  
 Just use Stayin' Alive. It even fits the theme.
 
2018-10-11 12:10:49 PM  
yeah, but who would want to be resuscitated to a Bieber song???

Subby, you missed the most relevant CPR soundtrack: Stayin' Alive by the BeeGees.

That The Fray's How to Save a Life is just outside the ideal 100-120 BPM range is disappointing.

eurotrader: Another one bites the dust works best for CPR


I had to take a CPR course for work and the instructor mentioned staying alive by the beegees. I interrupted and said another one bites the dust also works well. he almost lost his damn mind - apparently hadn't heard what I thought was an old joke before.

also MMMBop by Hanson

/apologies if that song gets stuck in your head
 
2018-10-11 01:33:40 PM  
Doesn't matter.  Just compress fast and constantly.

/ha ha ha ha staying alive, is how I was taught.

These medical professionals are all over the place on this topic:

Achy Breaky Makey Wakey Heart?
Conclusions
Listening to Disco Science while performing CPR did not increase the proportion of prehospital professionals delivering compressions correctly. Perhaps unsurprisingly, listening to Achy Breaky Heart had a negative effect. Disconcertingly, regardless of the nature or absence of musical accompaniment, the majority of participants did not compress at the recommended rate or depth.

"Stayin' Alive": A Novel Mental Metronome to Maintain Compression Rates in Simulated Cardiac Arrests
Conclusions
Medical providers trained to use a novel musical memory aid effectively maintained AHA guideline CPR compression rates initially and in long-term follow-up. Subjects felt that the aid improved their technical abilities and confidence in providing CPR.
https://www.jem-journal.com/article/S​0​736-4679(12)00114-X/abstract

Keeping the beat: does music improve the performance of chest compression by lay persons?
Conclusion and recommendations
'Listening to Nellie' (vs TTW or no music) significantly increased the proportion of lay persons achieving compression rates close to the 100bpm guideline. Playing it during training and 'real' CPR may help rescuers deliver correct compression rates.

My condolences to any persons whose life depended on me knowing any of The Bieb's songs. It'd take a fair portion of the Golden Hour for me to find them on the interwebs, then do a bpm count. Even then, they'd stand a non-negligible chance of me stopping compressios to hurl, rather than give rescue breaths.

/Besides, who'd want to anywhere near their face after hurling?

I have heard a few in the ICU actually sing the words while performing. It was used when I first learned but I also learned to do the breaths as well, that has changed.
 
2018-10-11 01:42:26 PM  
Stayin alive and another one bites the dust are the songs they used at my cpr training, although the latter was unofficial for the obvious public relations reasons.

Songs that have a beat of 100-120 beats per minute aren't that uncommon.
 
2018-10-11 01:48:57 PM  
Comprised of 40 songs at 100 BPM, each track consists of the optimum beat to time CPR compressions, so that 100 chest compressions are done per minute.

I normally achieve 100 beats per minute while listen to Taylor Swift.

Miss5280: Just use Stayin' Alive. It even fits the theme.


The only real problem with Stayin' Alive is that the beat cuts out at the end of the chorus; the tempo doesn't change, but you lose the sound during the "Stayin' alIIIIIIIIIIVE" portion. This can throw people off. It wouldn't be so bad if you could just loop the refrain in your head, but the refrain is where the problem is in the first place

That's basically the only real reason I prefer "Another One Bites the Dust" for this: the beat never cuts out.

1) You mean aid, not aide.

2) Hands-only CPR? What other body part were you using before?


They took out the breaths for basic lay person CPR training because they didn't do much for oxygenation, maintaining arterial pressure by not stopping compressions is more important, it's easier to remember, and people won't be too grossed out to do it. So you're using "hands only" now.

If you're an actual medical person and have the training and the gear, you still do breathing.

Lips?

In reference to the article, how is the Stayin' Alive thing, how is that a 'rumor?' They have used that one as the official example in every CPR training I have done in the last 20 years, one of which was provided by the government.

If I were Barry Gibb, I'd spend my days going around to the hospital rooms of people who have been revived by CPR. "Hello! So glad you're feeling better. I understand it was quite a close thing. Thank goodness for CPR, right? Now, about the licensing fee. How would you like to settle that?"

I'm hoping these demonstrations are just to raise awareness of CPR training, or dog cuteness, or something like that. I can't imagine a dog being able to bear down with enough force to break the sternum of an average adult, which is often required in order to give compressions correctly.
