Stay Alive With “Stayin’ Alive”

A study from the University of Illinois College of Medicine has shown that the song “Stayin’ Alive” helps people perform CPR correctly.  It is recommended that you give 100 chest compressions per minute when doing CPR, very close to the 103 beats per minute of “Stayin’ Alive”.  There are other songs that have close to 100 beats per minute, but few probably known as universally in the U.S. as “Stayin’ Alive.”

And everyone should know CPR.  So everyone go out, put on your platform shoes and get to the local Red Cross or American Heart Association class and get certified so you an save a life.
