Disco Doctor Training
Perfect Chest Compressions with "Stayin' Alive"

The Bee Gees song “Stayin’ Alive” might be more true to its name than we would ever have guessed. At 103 beats per minute, the song has almost the perfect rhythm to help jump-start a stopped heart. “Nellie the Elephant” by Toy Dolls is another good choice.

In a small but intriguing study from the University of Illinois Medical School, the disco tune helped doctors and students maintain close to ideal chest compressions.

Nice to know what is going through your doctor’s head as they try to save your life. Of course any song at around 100 beats per minute would do, but who can ignore the brilliant irony of “Stayin’ Alive!”
