Guest: Dr. Vijay Subbarao, Cardiologist with Denver Heart This February during American Heart Month, the American Heart Association is encouraging everyone to take the challenge of having one person in every family or household know how to perform CPR.  Cardiac arrest and heart attack are different but CPR should be performed on both.  CPR is important because the compressing of the heart it restores the blood flow.  It is recommended to do 100-120 beats per minute.  Some songs that will help you keep the beat are “Stayin’ Alive,” by the Bee Gees, “Crazy in Love,” by Beyoncé featuring Jay-Z, “Hips Don’t Lie,” by Shakira” or “Walk the Line,” by Johnny Cash can “Be the Beat” to save a life.  If an AED (Automated External Defibrillators) is available, they can greatly increase a cardiac arrest victim's chances of survival.
