    What do hearts and metronomes have in common? Rhythm, of course. Rhythm is especially important for hearts when it comes to performing effective CPR. CPR has been a staple of first aid since the 1740s. When properly performed, it doubles or triples the chances of survival for someone under cardiac arrest. The proper rate of compression is a consistent 100 to 120 beats per minute. When it’s too fast or too slow, the effectiveness of CPR is vastly decreased. Which brings us to metronomes. Usually used by musicians to maintain a steady beat, they can also help first responders stay on beat while performing CPR. A recent study found CPR was 22% more effective when performed to a metronome beat. But since metronomes aren’t usually included in emergency supply kits, the American Heart Association now teaches potential life-savers to hum the song “Stayin’ Alive" by the Bee Gees while performing chest compressions. The song not only has obvious subliminal benefits, but also a beat of 103 beats per minute. The researchers emphasize that keeping the beat isn’t the only important aspect of CPR--proper hand placement and pressure are just as critical. Which is why you should really take today's free lesson on CPR!

    Another reason to live in Seattle
    A curio with
    View curio

    Looking for more reasons to move to Seattle? Sudden cardiac arrest has long been a leading cause of death among adults. Despite continuous research for more effective solutions, CPR--which stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation--is still the gold standard. (It's also still performed to a 1970's song, as we learned in a recent Curio.) In the US alone, there are 350,000 annual resuscitation attempts outside hospitals, and 750,000 attempts in hospitals. The survival rate in hospital is 20%, versus around 5% outside. What's more, cardiac arrest survival rates depend greatly on your location. Chances of surviving in Seattle are 20%, versus only 3% in Detroit. This is a much bigger variation than seen with strokes and heart attacks. Experts believe this is because of medical technology and process advances happening in a few cities such as Seattle. It starts with better training of EMS providers, and public awareness that bystanders should jump in immediately to attempt CPR. Secondly, most good samaritans, EMS providers, and doctors tend to go too slowly, pause too long to check for a pulse, and stop administering CPR too soon. Experts now recommend administering between 100 and 120 compressions per minute, at a depth of five centimeters, for 45 minutes! That's a serious workout, and requires not only training but multiple people. Then, once the patient is in the hospital, more advanced techniques are required to save the lives of people who have had CPR properly administered. One procedure is called extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), where blood is drawn from the patient, circulated through an oxygenated filter, and then returned to the body. Another technique is therapeutic hypothermia, where the patient's body temperature is lowered by up to 10°F for 24 hours to slow the death of cells. If these innovations were universally implemented, as many as 30,000 lives could be saved annually in just the US. So don't wait any longer, take a Curious lesson today on how to administer CPR.
