Stayin’ Alive

“Stayin’ Alive” is a hit from the seventies, written by the Gibb brothers, Barry, Robin and Maurice, members of the popular group, ┬áthe Bee Gees.

To give people a better understanding of how to perform CPR when needed, a you tube video shows actors performing the procedure to the beat of this popular disco song of the seventies.

Hands only CPR requires 100 chest compressions per minute and the tempo of “Stayin’ Alive” is 103 beats a minute, making the song a potential life saving hit with the American Heart Association.

Here is the link to one of the “Stayin’ Alive” videos, featuring Saturday Night Fever with a very young John Travolta.
