Disco Saves Lives: Do CPR To The "Staying Alive" Beat

The Bee Gees can do more than just move your feet.

When someone has a "cardiac event"—that is, if someone suddenly passes out and their heart stops—calling 911 and administering CPR is the go-to method for trying to resuscitate them. But what's the proper way to administer CPR? To help people do CPR correctly, the American Heart Association made use of the Bee Gee's "Stayin' Alive": at 100 beats per minute, it's the ideal rhythm for re-starting a stopped heart. And now we have The Masked Singer judge Ken Jeong to help us really remember the beat.
