20 songs with the bpm to perform CPR at

Just as a good rhythm is needed to dance properly, a steady rhythm is needed when performing CPR. While “The Office” helped make the song “Staying Alive” a popular, life-saving soundtrack, maybe you’ve had enough of the Bee Gees. For a change of pace, we’ve compiled a list of songs ranging from 100 to 120 bmp, the recommended range for performing CPR.
