EMS can be better

The Bee Gees do CPR

I dare you to try this on a scene:

“A small study by University of Illinois College of Medicine researchers in Peoria has found that 10 doctors and five medical students who listened to the “Saturday Night Fever” tune while practicing CPR not only performed perfectly, they remembered the technique five weeks later.”

Sadly, there are no videos (yet) of people doing CPR to Stayin’ Alive. Instead, here’s the original music video for the song:

  1. Consequently, and a bit more Ironic(evidence based) is Queens “Another one bites the dust” Shares the same tempo!!! Too many years ago we were taught that “Mary had a little Lamb” was the proper song to gauge, but I had to find a different song to sing on the 45 minute ride to the ER. Thanks guys, Your doing a great job!!
