Staying Alive with This CPR Video

As a certified personal trainer and group exercise instructor, I have to keep my CPR certification current each and every year. And it seems like every few years, the recommendations for performing CPR change just a little, based on current research. I’ve always taken my CPR certification serious, as I know people who have had to use the information in some really terrible situations. But—no matter how prepared you are— it’s always hard to know exactly how you’ll react when something bad happens and you have to rely on that CPR knowledge. That’s where this video comes in. While I’ve used all of the suggested mnemonic devices to remember breaths to compressions and the steps to even be okay to perform CPR, nothing quite compares to this little bit featuring Ken Jeong from The Hangover. Nothing. It’s humor and information in one!

    I just got certified in CPR. The giving of breath was still part of our training. Loved this video, though, the blonde busomy babes rocked in selling the message.

    I wish that the “stayin’ alive” beat was used back when I taught CPR in college. Would have been easier to visualize just how fast you had to pump. Instead we just said how fast you had to pump, and I think everyone, including the instructors, didn’t realize just how fast/tiring it is.
