迪斯科也能救命!

Disco Saves Lives!

How to save somebody's life.

Step 1. Find somebody who's heart just stopped beating.

Step 2. Put on the Bee Gees classic 'Stayin' Alive.' (If a computer's nearby, this YouTube version will work fine.)

Step 3. Begin chest compressions on the patient.

In a study that was small and gimmicky (but also sort of clever), researchers played Stayin' Alive as a tool to help would-be rescuers get the right rhythm for the chest compressions that are a key component of CPR.

It's gimmicky for obvious reasons. It's clever because rescuers often fail to deliver the roughly 100 chest compressions per minute that guidelines recommend for CPR - and Stayin' Alive has 103 beats per minute. (The authors, at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria, used the deliciously named MixMeister BPM Analyzer to figure this out.)

So they rounded up 15 med students and medical residents and had them perform chest compressions on a dummy while listening to the music. Their task: Time their compressions to the beat. They did pretty well, averaging 109 beats per minute. The researchers then had the students do the simulation again, at least five weeks later, without listening to music - to see if the lesson stuck. It did, more or less - the rescuers averaged 113 beats per minute.

This study, which will be presented later this month at an emergency medicine conference, is too small to prove much of anything. And if you want to see if music makes people do better, you should compare two groups, one of which trains with music and the other trains without music. But, come on. The Bee Gees? Chest compressions? How can a blogger resist?

斯科也能救命!

步骤一:找一个心脏刚刚停止跳动的人。

步骤二:播放六七十年代英国三兄弟组合Bee Gees乐队经典歌曲《Stayin' Alive》。如果附近有电脑的话,这个YouTube上的版本就很不错。

谁说迪斯科已经过时



步骤三:开始对病人实施胸部按压。

在一个好玩但却聪明的小型研究中,研究人员用《Stayin' Alive》这首歌曲来帮助救援人员找到胸部按压的正确节奏。胸部按压是心肺复苏术(CPR)的重要组成部分。

这一研究好玩之处显而易见。其聪明之处在于救援人员通常难以做到CPR指导方法所推荐的胸部按压频率每分钟100下──而《Stayin' Alive》每分钟的节奏是103下。来自伊利诺伊大学佩奥雅医学院(University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria)的研究人员使用了乐曲速度分析软件MixMeister BPM Analyzer得出这一结论。

研究人员为此征集了15名医学院学生和驻院医生,让他们边听音乐边对一个假人实施胸部按压,他们的任务是跟着节奏进行按压。结果他们做得相当不错,平均每分钟按压109下。至少五周以后,研究人员随后又让学生们不听音乐做模拟按压,看看是否管用。结果是或多或少,救援人员平均每分钟按压113下。

这项研究本月晚些时候将在一个急救医疗会议上发布,研究规模很小,证明不了什么。如果你想看看音乐是否让人们按压得更好的话,你应该比较两组人员,一组听音乐进行训练,一组不听音乐进行训练。不过,得了吧,Bee Gees乐队?胸部按压?一个博客作者怎么能错过这样的题材?
