Play These Songs In An Emergency, They Could Mean The Difference Between Life And Death

Everyone knows that CPR saves lives, but if you don't know how to do it correctly, it is ineffective. According to American Heart Association victims of cardiac arrest have a better chance of survival if they receive CPR immediately following an attack.

The association recommends that rescuers push on the chest at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute. To help you keep count, the New York-Presbyterian Hospital has created a Spotify playlist of songs that have 100 beats per minute!

Have a listen - we bet some of your favorites are on this list!

Each year, over 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States. If CPR is performed within minutes of an attack, a person's chances of surviving can double or triple thanks to the lifesaving technique.

Keep a few of these songs handy on your phone just in case you ever need to respond with CPR in an emergency!
