Spotify Playlist Showcases Songs for CPR, Like “Stayin’ Alive” These Tunes Are 100 Beats Per Minute

CPR, when performed properly,  can increase the chances of surviving cardiac arrest. More important than going really fast is to set a steady tempo to keep blood pumping, much like a regular heartbeat. The rate of compressions should be between 100 and 120 beats per minute. Oftentimes, the Bee Gees classic “Stayin’ Alive” is used to help keep pace, but there are a number songs from different times and genres with the same tempo. In those chaotic moments when you’re trying to save a life, any of these songs will help you focus on a regular rhythm. This playlist developed by New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Spotify “Songs to do CPR to” playlist, help administer chest compressions at a steady pace. They’ve selected more than 40 songs that are all 100 beats per minute, the recommended tempo for CPR.

From the classics, like the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” and “Dancing Queen” by ABBA, to more contemporary, there are songs for everyone to have something to sing in their head during a critical moment. Movie buffs will appreciate the Star Wars Imperial March, while more contemporary options like Adele’s “Rumor Has It” and Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” might be more familiar to the younger set.

Most cardiac arrests happen in homes or private settings. The American Heart Association estimates over 90 percent of those people die before making it to the hospital. If performed properly, CPR can double or triple the chances of survival. Initiating CPR as soon as possible is important because it keeps the blood oxygenated. It oxygen is not circulating throughout the body, the brain dies.

First Aid Preparedness — Having trained personnel ready and willing to render first aid will reassure other co-workers and make them feel safer themselves.

An OSHA enforcement case announced in December 2016 is a good example of the kind of worker injury where a co-worker might have to respond quickly with first aid assistance. The agency proposed $274,934 in penalties against an Ohio plastics manufacturer after a pneumatic bench cutter severed a 27-year-old employee’s finger as she cut rubber material in June 2016. Along with the penalties came four repeated, six serious, and three other-than-serious violations filed by OSHA against the company, which also was placed in the OSHA Severe Violators Enforcement Program, according to OSHA.

The key standards for ensuring employees are ready and able to provide first aid care to an injured or sick co-worker are familiar ones. The OSHA standard for general industry include logging operations, medical services and first aid, first aid kits, and both first aid training and CPR training.

First aid trainers note that immediate treatment of an injured or ill employee could save that person’s life. Minutes count for injured or sick employees—equally important, having trained first aid personnel ready and willing to respond will reassure other co-workers and make them feel safer themselves. Training helps to prevent safety issues as well as to manage events, should they occur.

One Beat CPR + AED provides first aid and CPR training. CPR/AED and first aid certifications are good for two years.

An AED saved Bob Harper, but could you find one in an emergency?

Celebrity fitness trainer Bob Harper says an AED – an automatic external defibrillator – helped save his life when he suffered a heart attack at his gym. But if an emergency took place at your office, school or gym, could you find one? TODAY national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen tests some real gym patrons.

The takeaway, today we should go to our workplaces, to our schools, to our gyms and find the defibrillator now so that we are prepared when an emergency occurs. If something happens, someone should be grabbing the AED and someone should be grabbing an employee.

Bob Harper on his heart attack: ‘I had what they call a widow-maker’. In an exclusive interview with TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie, celebrity fitness trainer Bob Harper talks about the shocking heart attack he suffered 50 days ago. “I was in full cardiac arrest; my heart was stopped,” Harper says. Of his road to recovery, he says “It’s been hard,” but he vows to enjoy “very single day” of his life from now on, and urges viewers to have their own hearts checked if they have a family history.

Bob Harper closes the segment with, “I will never, ever walk into a gym again that doesn’t have CPR — people that know their CPR — and there is an AED somewhere in that gym…I will make sure that every place has something like that.”

One Beat’s Staff Firefighters Complete 3rd Annual New York City Memorial Stair Climb

On March 19th 2017, more than 400 first responders representing the 23 NYPD, 37 PAPD and 343 FDNY ascended the 72 floors of 4 World Trade Center in the 3rd Annual New York City Memorial Stair Climb. While each first responder climbs in honor of one of the over 400 FDNY, NYPD and PAPD killed on September 11th 2001, the climb also memorializes fallen first responders and military personnel worldwide.

The Cook Family

One Beat CPR + AED’s Rick Cook, retired Chief of Coral Gables Fire Department, Daniel Cook of the Hollywood Fire Department, and Jeff Cook, also from the Coral Gables Fire Department, went to NYC for the stair climb. Each climbed for a specific firefighter who died in 9/11.

The New York City Memorial Stair Climb is foremost a memorial climb; however, each year they designate a beneficiary and mount a fundraising campaign for the organization. The climb also taps into firefighters’ competitive spirit. Climbers have the option to enter as a racer and be timed against other climbers as an individual or part of a team.

The NYC Memorial Stair Climb proudly supports Friends of Firefighters and The 9/11 Tribute Center as its 2017 beneficiaries.

Friends of Firefighters is dedicated to addressing the physical, mental health, and wellness needs of New York City’s firefighters and their families. Our ongoing mission is to provide long-term support and services through confidential counseling, wellness services, and other assistance required by firefighters and their families.

The 9/11 Tribute Center invites visitors to share personal stories of the 9/11 community – family members who lost loved ones, survivors, first responders and rescue workers, civilian volunteers, and community residents whose healing is a testament to the perseverance of the human spirit.

Texas Police Officer Uses CPR to Save 3-Year-Old Boy, Dramatic Save Story Caught on Dash-Cam Video – ABC News Today

aaa

Granbury, Texas, police officer, Chase Miller, was recently recognized by city officials for using CPR to save a 3-year-old boy.

On Oct. 12, Officer Miller responded to a 911 call requesting help at a Kentucky Fried Chicken for a little boy who was not breathing and unresponsive. Dash-cam footage from Miller’s vehicle showed him pulling into the restaurant’s parking lot minutes later.

The department said that after Miller got out of his vehicle, he encountered a group of people, including a crying woman carrying an unresponsive little boy in her arms.

The woman was identified as Bethany Hoover, 21, of Granbury, and the little boy as Hoover’s 3-year-old son, Brayden Geis. Brayden’s father, John Geis, 21, of Granbury, could also be seen in the video.

Hoover told ABC News today that Brayden had suffered a febrile seizure due to a cold he’d come down with.

A general manager at the Kentucky Fried Chicken, Hoover said she’d called her husband in to work as a cook that evening. She told him to bring along Brayden until her mother could come pick him up.

Hoover said at first, Brayden was playing but then started crying. She said she give him ibuprofen, but when she noticed how hot he was, she took him outside. The boy’s head was resting on his shoulder, Hoover said, and then she felt his arm go limp.

“[I] leaned him forward and he was having a seizure,” she said. “John called 911.”

Police said Miller began CPR and then had the boy’s dad continue chest compressions as he got a breathing mask. Police said that after two minutes, Miller had revived the child. Brayden was later treated by the Granbury Volunteer Fire Department and then taken to Lake Granbury Medical Center.

Hoover told ABC News that by the next day, Brayden was acting like nothing had happened though the fever still lingered.

At a City Council meeting Tuesday night, Miller was awarded the Life Saving Award for saving Brayden’s life. Miller also got to meet Brayden and his parents. The officer gave Brayden several gifts, including a toy police dog named Chase from the children’s show “Paw Patrol.”

“Officer Miller’s exceptional performance reflect great credit upon himself, the Granbury Police Department and the city of Granbury,” police said.

Hoover said that the three had visited Miller again at the police department today. She said that she and her husband had told Miller that they’d give him their world for saving Brayden.

“Our son is the world to us,” she said today. “That’s our world. That’s our life.”
