The study was conducted to improve chest compression training by analyzing manikin-assessed scores on chest compression and self-assessed scores on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) based on music and metronome training after video self-instruction (VSI). The 64 participants had undertaken 50 min of VSI and practiced 25 min of compression-only (C-O) CPR. Thirty-two participants of the music (the Bee Gees' Stayin' Alive) training group practiced C-O CPR 103 times a min, while 32 participants

Immediately after the training, participants performed 150 chest compressions on Resusci Anne SkillReporter; researchers collected 64 printouts, and 128 self-assessed scores on willingness, knowledge, performance, and attitude through pre and post-training questionnaires. There was no difference in the manikin-assessed scores between the music and metronome training groups. The two training methods were consistent with or similar to the compression guidelines. Therefore, C–O CPR training can be imparted by utilizing music as well as the existing metronome training method; however, supplementary research on how to maintain compression depth is needed, and ventilation training should be provided using other feedback devices.
