I keep wondering about the person who discovered this. Were they trying to save someone but found themselves just absolutely bored with the chest compressions so they started humming 70's bad music? Or was the rescue taking place in an elevator where a Stayin' Alive Muzak version was being pumped in? And if you came to and heard Stayin' Alive, would you think you were in Heaven or Hell?

I prefer administering CPR to the tune of Hava Nageela. Keep a great compression rhythm going and can dance the HORA at the same time.

True, and you can always use a Yamaka as a makeshift respirator, if needed that is...

LMAO..I'd much rather hear 'stayin' alive' while someone is doing chest compressions on me, than 'another one bites the dust'. Hearing that wouldn't give me much hope!! lol
