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.
What's New in Version 1.1

- Audio now plays while app is in background
Nice App, but Room for Improvement
The is a nice start for a needed app. I agree with previous reviews, the next versions should include ventilation tones. In the options, add the choices for a tone every 3 to 5 seconds for pediatric rescue breathing with a basic airway adjunct. There should also be an option for a tone every 5 to 6 seconds for adult rescue breathing with a basic airway adjunct and a tone every 6 to 8 seconds for rescue breathing with an advanced airway adjunct.
Another nice feature would be a button for other medications such as amiodarone, sodium bicarbonate, vasopressin, etc.
Keep working on the app. It is close to being the best app for resuscitation healthcare providers.
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.
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!
