CPR performed to music

4th November 2011

A study published in the Emergency Medicine Journal has found that listening to music in order to perform the correct number of chest compressions in CPR was not useful.

The researchers found one third of chest compressions were too shallow when performed to music and concluded: "When considering the combined importance of correct depth and rate, the authors are unconvinced that music provides any benefit in improving the quality of CPR compared with a metronome or audible feedback, suggesting that this interesting but unproductive area of resuscitation research should be discontinued."
