Random thing I heard

I heard this in a podcast the other night

In order to do CPR effectively you need to get the rhythm exactly right pump too slow and not enough blood gets to the body too fast and the heart doesn't refil before the next pump so you need to hit a speed of 100 beats per minute. Some research has shown that people remember the beat of a song they heard with very good accuracy. There is a popular song that is 100 beats per minute that you can expect most people to know. It's Staying Alive by the beegee's

There is another one that would also work but it's less thematically appropriate

Another one bites the dust by Queen


It even more funny when you hear those songs playing.
We often have Staying Alive playing when teaching the air cadets CPR...
