HOUSTON, TX – Heart Tech, a prominent manufacturer of automated external defibrillators (AEDs), announced today a new model that incorporates music into the device.  “AEDs at the moment tell bystanders to place pads on the patient, when it’s charging, and when to check for a pulse.  It says when to start chest compressions as well, however, some people still can’t get the perfect 100 beats per minute required by the American Heart Association,” Phillip Smith, head of development for the country stated.

Kids and their damn music these days

Traditionally, students of CPR are asked to think of two songs, Staying Alive by the Bee Gees and Another One Bites the Dust by Queen, to remember to give compressions at 100 bpm.

Each new unit will include only one song to help bystanders get in the rhythm of CPR.  Smith explained, “We will continue to include the classics from the Bee Gees and Queen, however, this new generation needs more songs to help them get into the mood, so we have an entire lineup of tempo-appropriate songs which will be available.  The song you get depends on the unit you use!”

New songs include Hips Don’t Lie by Shakira featuring Wyclef Jean, Crazy in Love by Beyonce, Rock Your Body by Justin Timberlake, Superstition by Stevie Wonder, and ZdoggMD’s Yeah.

Original plans included a shuffle function to allow CPR providers to select a song, however, this failed in development as testers either neglected giving CPR for too long a time to select a song or could not agree with each other on the best song to select.
