Do you remember Trini and Emilia? His masterful lesson on how to give a heart massage went viral. And not only because they saved Trini's husband's life, but also because of his sense of humor. That astounding tranquility while the victim falls to the ground without disheveled, that knowledge of Emilia (the friend), that staging and that moment … The moment. When Trini tells us that we have to help ourselves with "La Macarena" and all our glances go to the image of the virgin behind. What comes next is already recent history of our country.
Beyond the sense of humor, Trini's lesson is not new. And is that the rhythm of this song allows to maintain the cadence of 100-120 compressions per minute recommended when practicing cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
The last ones to show us the usefulness of Los del Río's song, are not others that the students of the National Police School, in Ávila. As a tribute to the European Day of Awareness of Cardiac Arrest, The police have posted a didactic video of how they learn first aid in their networks.
But if you are one of those who are already fed up and think that "La Macarena" is even in the soup, do not worry, there are other less painful outlets. What's more, chances of life, of destiny or go to know, the song "Stayin Alive", by the Bee Gees, has the perfect rhythm for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. For those who are not proficient in English, the Spanish translation of the title would be: «Keep alive». Nothing more to add.
