How to Find the Right Dentist for You
One of disco's most enduring triumphs, the 1977 hit by the Brothers Gibb, "Stayin' Alive" is being used to help train doctors maintain the proper tempo for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
it could save someone's life.
In performing CPR -- the perfect rhythm is 100 compressions per minute, and done properly, it can triple a heart arrest victim's chances of survival. But, when you're saving a life, do you remember that ideal rhythm of life-saving compressions? The researchers found the snawer:Think "Stayin' Alive."
Doctors performed CPR to the soundtrack of "Stayin' Alive," a song with exactly 103 beats per minute. Five weeks later (it's not clear whether they got to return to the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack for a little disco refresher), the subjects still had their CPR rhythms close to perfect, at an average of 113 beats per minute.
Sure there are other pop songs that clock in at close to 100 beats per minute, But could you do better than "Stayin' Alive" under the circumstances?
Disco has been rehabilitated from nerdy music for Seniors to a lifesaving rhythm.
What's the next music that could be the source of inspiration?
What if we discovered that the "Hokey Pokey" actually IS what it's all about?
