EVERYONE CAN SAVE A LIFE. It takes less than a minute to learn how to save a life.
"I’ve never prepared myself for CPR in my life. I had no idea what I was doing."
There’s a viral video of a two-year-old named Saige demonstrating how to perform CPR. Her EMT and firefighter dad, Chris Pietroforte, tells Inside Edition that anyone can learn the correct rate of the compressions by singing a song that is 100-120 beats per minute. Guess which tune fits that criteria? “You can do it to ‘Baby Shark,’” Pietroforte says.
Knowing how to administer CPR effectively is one the most important skills the general public can have during such an emergency. However, studies indicate that only one in five persons in the U.S. know how to save a life, or have saved a life by administering CPR.
This version of CPR is easier and more effective.
If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, call 9-1-1 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the classic disco song "Stayin' Alive." CPR can more than double a person's chances of survival, and "Stayin' Alive" has the right beat for Hands-Only CPR.
Modern medicine has come up with a number of tools to combat cardiopulmonary arrest. Many of these emergency procedures require medical training and/or complex equipment, but one, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), can be used in the field by lay people with only a little bit of training.
Conventional CPR might exhaust a first-aider before the ambulance arrives, says paramedic Bob Trenkamp, who developed an alternative method.
"Imagine, for a moment, trying to deliver cardiac compressions while floating weightlessly in orbit," Fong writes in his book. Because you're in a zero-gravity environment, the trick is to strap the patient down to the floor to keep him or her still.
In the 40-odd years since I learned CPR at The New York Times, the American Heart Association has simplified the technique while barely compromising its effectiveness. Although an in-person class with practice on a mannequin is ideal, the current method can be used by untrained people and learned via a brief online video at Hands-Only CPR. For those unwilling or unable to do mouth-to-mouth breathing, the latest technique focuses on critical chest compressions, which — when done correctly — can get blood flowing through the heart and to the brain.

Wendi McLendon-Covey, star of the ABC hit comedy The Goldbergs, teaches the two steps of Hands-Only CPR in this American Heart Association video called "The Mix-Up." The video, produced with the support of the Anthem Foundation, is an entertaining parody of recent award.
Over the past decade, CPR has changed. The currently-recommended technique is now incredibly simple, avoids putting your mouth on a stranger’s face (huzzah!), and could double—or triple—the victim’s chances of surviving a cardiac arrest.
Learn these CPR steps now so you know what to do if someone if ever experiencing a life-threatening emergency.
