1. I think this would make people continue compressing even when they don't need you.....and now you've killed a person because you couldn't stop jamming.

  2. When I first got licensed my instructor told about his first time out in the field and he was doing CPR only to find out he was actually muttering "another one bites the dust", he said he didn't even realize and the only reason he didn't get in huge trouble is cause the other lady there was too deaf to hear it and his partners thought it was lowkey kinda funny but told him NEVER again 😅😂

  3. How big is the margin for error? I don't know if a majority of people can nail the BPM even if they knew the song. Most times people are too fast, from my music playing experience.

  4. What's funny is that song actually does have a similar beat rate to the recommended songs. So if you actually pump to the actual beat rate of the song, that would work too!

  5. "Listen, it's not your fault the victim didn't make it, but... well we're gonna file the family's comments under 'bedside manner,' and ask you to switch from scrubs to blue jeans."

  6. So, in the heat of the moment, I'm just going to be sitting there figuring out which song to hum while someone is dying.

  7. I was already certified, but new job required me to take the class again. I asked the instructor if I could just come back for the test. "Sorry no, law says you have take the class to be able to take the test."

  8. I do compressions to the beat of “1, 2, 3, where the fuck is my partner, goddamn I gotta switch to do the airway, wonder if my ass crack is out, …..fuck where was I in my counting, has it been two minutes yet, …..13, 14”

  9. As a critical care nurse in the middle of a pandemic, I’ve done a few compressions. I initially started out with a combo of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da and Staying Alive, because both are upbeat and happy songs (“life goes oooonnnnnnn, la la la la life goes on”).

  10. If you’re going to only compress every 8th beat while singing the wrong lyrics to a well know song, just curb stomp me and be done with it...

  11. fun fact, you can actually use that song, but only once it actually gets going, like the chorus. It's 120bpm I think. Really any disco song can work i think.

  12. Person either comes back to life to punch you or gives in completely and prays hell takes them quickly.

  13. A lot of classes are free, and it’s an absolutely invaluable thing to know. I’d say 99% of the time we’ve been able to save a patient in cardiac arrest, was when a bystander/family member started compressions early.

  14. Fun fact : in France there is an app called "Staying Alive" which, if you are officialy formed with first aid, Can Ask you to go perform CPR on somebody until an ambulance arrives when you are close to the person with cardiac distress ! It also has tutorials on first aid, look it up :)

  15. I took a 911 call a couple months ago. Man had collapsed. Wife was losing her mind. Neighbor grabbed the phone and had to lead with “I’m an emt in training…” Determined we needed to start cpr. He starts (with the wife right there crying) “push push push.. another one bites the dust. push push push.. another one bites the dust “ One of the few times I’ve been speechless. You can’t say anything, because that just brings more attention to it.

  16. Finally found someone who I can gripe with, thank you. This is what they teach you at the class, not an original thought you might have in the shower..

  17. When I took my class almost 5 years ago, the instructor said "Staying Alive" was not of actuality, because the pace is a bit too slow for CPR... I don't know if it changed again since?

  18. The pace is supposed to be 100-120 compressions per minute. So its on the lower end of the range, but still within range. Don't know why they would say it isnt okay.

  19. You can take the theme of BPM literally and do tempo by Lizzo too (107 BPM). Before you ask, yes, CPR by Cupcakke falls within the range too.

  20. My name is Yoshikage Kira. I’m 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don’t smoke, but I occasionally drink. I’m in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning.

  21. Dammit if I’m coding someone and start humming Baby Shark I’m coming back to these comments to haunt you!

  22. I actually work along side the ER doctor that first implemented staying alive as a tool to aid in CPR. Really cool to see how it has taken off and was even used in an episode of the office!

  23. Yeah it’s the secret they don’t tell you about mostly but working in healthcare yeah I won’t admit to you being right but I’ll just say there’s a good chance many think the same thing.

  24. Not a shower thought. This taught in almost every CPR class and Ken Jong (yes the comedian who is really a physician) has an 11 year old video on it.

  25. Having run codes for 19 years, I wanna know who is out there teaching compressions at over 200 bpm? For that matter, who is doing them at that rate and getting depth and recoil much less lasting any time at all?

  26. I'm currently doing CPR training again and have been told staying alive is perfect. What songs are you being taught? I can't imagine anything faster could be done for very long.... I'd collapse pretty quickly if I was trying to Sandstorm a guys chest.

  27. I literally did the first one the first set, then after I was given a break so 2 others could go, I did the second song on my second set (it was obvious by then). Volunteer firefighter at the time.

  28. I took a lifeguarding certification and CPR course 2 years ago. The current recommended procedure is to do the chest compressions as fast as you can while getting 1.5" to 2" of chest compression (depending on size and age of the individual).

  29. Don’t forget to cut off the face and put it on as a mask afterwards. I didn’t think it was very realistic in the movies… and it turns out, it’s pretty realistic.

  30. Despite which song you sing, the person getting cor still has a 20% chance of survival. Let's not talk about how many people that get cpr have brain injuries too.

  31. I chose Staying Alive, cause I really didn't want my friend to die. Even though I was a certified First Aid Attendant, when I had to do CPR on someone I cared about, everything I was taught flew out the window. Fortunately, the 911 operator I called walked me through it. It was the most exhausting 10 minutes of my life. It took extra time for the paramedics and fire department to arrive as the elevator was out of order and we were on the 7th floor. I'm not 100% sure what they did after they took him into the hall (we were in a cramped SRO), probably Narcan or something, but he sprung up suddenly. He was alive, I kept his blood pumping long enough to save him.

  32. See you have a song for a pessimist, and Optimist, but I have a song for gynecologists... It can also be done to the beat of Wet. Ass. Pussy.
