Near Perfect CPR - Stayin' Alive
When doing CPR, the last thing you're thinking of is music, really, but maybe you should be, and specifically the Bee Gees song Stayin' Alive.
According to the American Heart Association, at 103 beats per minute the Stayin' Alive song almost perfectly matches the rhythm needed to jump start the heart (100 beats per minute). And, apparently, the American Heart Association has been using the song as a training tip for CPR instructors for about two years.
This article on the CNN website is worth a read.
The last line is particularly memorable:
"I heard a rumor that 'Another One Bites the Dust' works also, but it didn't seem quite as appropriate"...
So next time you're doing CPR, you may want to crank the music up (in your head at least).
