Stayin’ Alive = Save A Life

The Bee Gees were really on to something. Who knew?

According to Reuters, a small research study out of the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria says that the beat of “Stayin’ Alive” is ideal to follow for chest compressions while performing CPR.

How ideal is it? The American Heart Association says to compress at 100 beats per minute. “Stayin’ Alive” clocks in at 103, so remember that the next time you save someone’s life!
