When TELI Meets Music
“Alive by CPR” is an upbeat pop-song capturing the heartbeat of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), a lifesaving technique for heart attack victims. Similar to Bee Gee’s song “Stayin’ Alive”, the TELI team recomposed the lyrics of “Alive”, a song by a local band called RubberBand, with a rhythm of 120 beats per minute (bpm), matching with the recommended CPR rate of 100 to 120 chest compressions per minute.
The First CPR Song in HK
There are nearly 3000 people suffering from Sudden Cardiac Death every year in Hong Kong, yet there is no mandatory first-aid training in local schools. To raise public awareness of CPR, the TELI team together with RubberBand and the Emergency Medicine Unit (EMU) of the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine produced a music video on CPR, with correct procedures demonstrated.
