CPR Tempo provides audio and visual cues to aid the timing of chest compressions during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Timers are also provided for rhythm checks after defibrillator shocking and for epinephrine administration.

The American Heart Association recommends a rate of 100 compressions per minute during CPR. This is difficult to maintain without audio cues, especially as the rescuer tires. ER nurse and Army Reservist MAJ Don Kyle shared with Frozen Ape about our metronome app Tempo is being used for this purpose. We have since worked with Don to create a specialised app, including the following bonus features:

- Timer with visual and audio cues for rhythm checks
- Timer with visual and audio cues for Epinephrine administration
- Log of each resuscitation event detailing each action taken and location of event (location services required)
- Configurable CPM (compressions per minute) from 100 to 120
- Configurable epinephrine interval from 3 to 5 minutes

Disclaimer: This app follows standards recommended by the American Heart Association. Do not use this app if these standards do not align with your medical practice. Please familiarize yourself with this app, including the tutorial, and verify the settings before using the app in an actual resuscitation event. Frozen Ape Pte. Ltd. is not liable for mishaps due to the misuse of, or malfunctioning of the app.

  • Love it!

    by Mother hill

    Absolutely love this app. Let's you change and save your epi interval to 4 minutes. As an AHA instructor I will recommend this to my students as well.

  • Great app!

    by Disneyfanatic101

    I am an instructor for EMT, lay responder CPR/AED and professional CPR/AED and I use this app all the time to teach my students the right speed of compressions they should be doing in two minutes!

  • Nice app but...

    by Elizabeth Fisona

    Nice starting point. The metronome is great. It's cool that it tells you to check the pulse every 2 minutes and helps to keep everyone on track, but I'd change the name of the defibrillation button to something else, like CPR. Also it's nice that it has the epi button and it counts down until the next epi...I'd consider just renaming that to drug, if its too complicated to add other drug buttons. The log is great. It also needs some way to override the sleep set on your phone, so it'll be beeping along and just stop because your phone went into sleep mode. It's a nice start and could be a great app with a few tweaks.

  • Awful

    This is very unhelpful.
