Music = Life

Stay on beat with Shanti (Das’) Playlist

did-you-knowSeventy percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes. If you are called on to perform CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.

Music Can Save Lives

Hands-Only CPR has just two easy steps, performed in this order:

  1. Call 9-1-1 if you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse
  2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of a familiar song that has 100 to 120 beats per minute.
    Song examples include “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees, “Crazy in Love” by Beyoncé featuring Jay-Z, “Hips Don’t Lie” by Shakira” or “Walk the Line” by Johnny Cash.
