'Stayin' Alive' Helps CPR


Posted October 17, 2008 - By jmanalang

The next time you see someone in need of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, don't panic. Just approach the scene and tell them, "Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk, I'm a woman's man: no time to talk." Oh wait, that's not how it works?

Doctors and students from the University of Illinois did a small study regarding CPR. The study revealed that by listening to the Bee Gees's Saturday Night Fever tune, Stayin' Alive, the beats to the song comes close to the number of chest compressions required to do proper CPR.

Dr. David Matlock from the university said that by listening to the song while performing CPR, students were motivated in giving more chest compressions than required--which is 100 as recommended by the American Heart Association. "It drove them and motivated them to keep up the rate, which is the most important thing," Matlock said in CNN's report.

Haa...Haa...Ha, Ha...stayin' aliiiiive....
