These Songs can save lives – in the truest sense of the word

That a Song can sometimes save lives, is for most likely nothing New. But most of the time it is said that, as important as music for many people in Crisis situations, but rather in a metaphorical sense. However, there are actually songs that can help save a life.

There are Songs that are intended to provide assistance in First aid. That a person for example along with a heart attack, can happen anywhere and at any time – and then it comes down to each second. Often, however, the bystanders are not overwhelmed with the Situation, know how to respond in a professional manner, and the last First aid course is much to long.

First aid can mean the difference between life and death

There are minutes that make the difference between life and death. Time to wait for a doctor, not. The New York Presbyterian Hospital has therefore compiled some time ago on Spotify a Playlist (“Songs to do CPR to”), which helps at a heart pressure massage. These Songs have exactly the frequency which should be at a heart pressure massage compress – 100 Beats per Minute.

“Only about 46 percent of people with cardiac arrest receive First aid from bystanders before the ambulance arrives,” said a spokeswoman for the hospital. “But every Minute of cardiac massage increases the chance of Survival by ten percent.”

You should come in fact, even in the Situation of having to provide First aid, you could turn quickly on his cell phone to the Playlist. Many of the Songs are so well known that you sing along in your head and at the same time in the rhythm of the chest of the patient. Suitable way, for example “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees on the Playlist, or “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor on the Playlist. But also modern Hits such as “Something Just Like This” by the Chainsmokers and Coldplay.

What song makes you now to his personal First-aid Song, remains a matter of taste. The main thing is that, you write in a case of emergency a Council of Europe: “Looking for you, you will remember – in the event that you need to save a life”, the Doctors as a comment to your Playlist.
