Staying Alive

Yeah, the BeeGees song.  Turns out, it has the proper tempo for CPR.
The Arizona Daily Star reports that 21-year-old Cross Scott found a woman locked in her car this month and broke in, finding she wasn't breathing.
He doesn't have any emergency training but thought of the show where Steve Carell's character does CPR to the tune of the Bee Gees' song "Stayin' Alive." The song has the correct tempo for chest compressions. Within a minute, the woman was breathing, and she was taken to a hospital and later released.
 Good Job, Scott!  I didn't know that the song has the right tempo, but it's something that is easy to remember.



100 beats per minute, that's the key.

"Another One Bites The Dust" is also the correct tempo. What that means I'll leave to the reader to decide.
