STAYIN’ ALINE and speed — Whether You’re A Brother or John Travolta’s Mother, You’re Staying Alive! – The ‘New York Times Effect On Man’ – The Bee Gees Unintended “Life-Saver” Song is 13-15% slower than you’ve been told. Real speed, links, and tempo graphs.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation has become associated with the speed of the song STAYIN’ ALIVE by the Bee Gees, many of whom are now dead.

From the precision measurements made by Matherton of Meanspeed® Music, it seems that the 110-120 beats per minute called for by the various Heart Foundations is a speed called for in the abstract, while the reality of the song is in fact:

mean arithmetic speed=103.6 beats per minute

average beat=0.5915 seconds.

These charts show from the longest view, that being the view with the most elongated y-axis, 30-390, to a medium range via, 60-120 bpm on the y-axis and the close up of 103-106 bpm that the song slower than the one given speed that everyone copied but no one bothered to measure.

The difference in the speeds in is the same as the difference between Sting’s Field Of Gold (104 bpm) and Metallica’s Enter Sandman (121 bpm).  I do not know if this 13% difference in what is represented by the main “Just Let Me Copy Your Paper I’m Too Lazy To Check The Math” stream press will make a difference in a person’s living or dying.  I do know that if you are running a family company business, you’ll want to have every employee knowing how to perform CPR.  Using a song is fine, but the wrong speed may kill someone.

For songs between 110-120, comb the web and there are plenty of songs – or you can use this one, but be aware to keep up the pace and not go “Bee Gees mellow” on your pacing.

Keep hearts alive, keep business alive.

And nope, this is not an April Fool’s joke.  Those jokes are found in over half the sponsored and innocently or lazily wrong articles below.

Is this man using a watch?  Does it matter?

known information on CPR and pump speed of the arms as of 04/01/13

THE Bee Gees hit Stayin’ Alive is at the heart of a new campaign launched today — to save the lives of cardiac arrest victims.

The British Heart Foundation wants people to use chest compressions on heart attack cases instead of trying to give the kiss-of-life.

It says that pumping the chest at between 110 and 120 beats per minute — the same rate as the 1978 hit — is more effective than a poor breath resuscitation attempt.

The charity is launching the TV campaign, backed by the UK Resuscitation Council, aiming to give people confidence to use the CPR technique.
