Members don't see this ad.
Trivia--The song "Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees has just about the amount of compressions needed in one minute during CPR (103).....
Those who sang the song when doing CPR had the correct amount of compressions even many months later..
[Its ironic how that was the greatest selling album ]:)

You and your trivia!

I've heard about this. Apparently it's not just the number that is correct, but also the rhythm of the compressions. I think the song title is even a touch ironic. :D

We learned CPR to the tune of "Staying Alive". I thought it was just something our instructor made up....obviously, it's more widespread than that! :D

Well to me that represents one of the greatest things about SDN and this country..(we take it for granted)... But we get to share ideas, information, get to network, and share thoughts..[Geez, some creative mind may have a better way to do something]

And Kirschwasser, so true "my bad" (slang)--rhythm as you say is different from quantity....
