Pick a song. Grab a ball. Push to the beat. Surprise, you’re learning CPR, like our friends from Public (the band).
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), is the act of pushing on a chest when the heart is not beating (or pumping). When the heart works properly, it circulates blood and oxygen throughout the body. When you’re in cardiac arrest, it is not and our hands need to be the pump.
Find a spot on the chest (above the heart), clasp your hands together, straighten your arms, lock your elbows, and push hard and fast, using your upper body.
Move to the beat of your favorite 100 beat per minute song. If you don’t have one, visit the CPR Jukebox Playlist. Saving lives is serious; learning how can be fun.
Grab a ball. Pick a song. Push to the beat. #CPRJukebox
