10 Songs You Can Use to Keep the Beat During CPR

cpr songs

Although cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) may seem complex at first, music offers a great option to take the guesswork out of performing CPR.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends performing chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute during CPR. By doing so, an individual can match the beat of the popular disco hit “Stayin’ Alive” as he or she administers CPR.

Delivering life-saving assistance to the beat of “Stayin’ Alive” has helped many individuals become life-savers and ensure they can administer chest compressions to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) victims properly. In addition, there are other songs that you can use to keep the right beat as you perform CPR, including:

  1. Lil Jon – “Turn Down for What”
  2. Shakira – “Hips Don’t Lie”
  3. Beyoncé and Jay-Z – “Crazy in Love”
  4. Third Eye Blind – “Semi-Charmed Life”
  5. Big & Rich – “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy”
  6. Nelly – “Ride wit Me”
  7. Missy Elliot – “Work It”
  8. Sixpence None the Richer – “Kiss Me”
  9. Something Corporate – “Straw Dogs”
  10. The Chainsmokers – “Roses”

The aforementioned songs may help you stay focused as you perform CPR, and ultimately, improve your chances of making a difference in your community.

Each year, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrest incidents occur in the United States, according to the AHA. However, with the ability to administer chest compressions at the right beat, you’ll be better equipped to help an SCA victim in his or her time of need. Therefore, you’ll be able to deliver vital assistance and may be able to prevent the loss of life if you understand how to perform CPR correctly.
