CPR done the cool way

Posted by chris On February - 24 - 2009

Not everyone knows how to do CPR; at least, not properly.  Whether it’s the location to pump, the number of pumps, the beat of the pumps, or something else, most people do not have the knowledge required to safely administer CPR.

Until today!  (for the beat portion, at least).

I heard about this ages ago, but while listening to Queen on the way to work, it popped into my head this morning.  There are two highly recommended songs that, when performing CPR, contain the perfect rhythm for the pumping beat:  ”Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gee’s, and “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen.  Apparently, the beat of each song is perfectly timed for CPR.  So if you ever find yourself in a situation where you’re hard pressed for a pumping beat, pop one of those up on your iPod, and you’re golden!

Oh, and while the person having CPR performed on them may prefer the words “Stayin’ Alive” to “Another One Bites the Dust”, it is my humble opinion that Queen > Bee Gees.  So, you know, if you ever need CPR and I’m the only one there, don’t listen to Freddie, just tap your toes to the beat.
