2 things you need to know to save someone's life, set to the beat of 'Stayin' Alive.' CPR is groovy.
Stayin' alive — literally.
Can disco help you save someone's life?
A fun PSA video by the American Heart Association is spreading the word about CPR in a seriously catchy way.
The scene: A family's having a normal dinner conversation — you know, about how to give CPR properly. (Don't you discuss that at dinner?)
Mom asks the question:
Kids roll their eyes, as kids often do:
But despite the eyerolling, the kids answer correctly with the two vital steps for giving CPR.
First, if you see a teen or adult collapse suddenly, call 911.
Second, push hard and fast at the center of the chest at the rate of at least 100 beats per minute.
And that's where the fun starts. 100 beats per minute. What exactly does that feel like?
Well apparently, the iconic 1970s song "Stayin' Alive" provides a convenient beat for giving CPR! You can actually give properly paced chest compressions to the beat of the song.
Long live disco! Literally.
