NY hospital creates CPR playlist

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Members of the Beyhive have said for years that Beyoncé’s music has the power to heal. It turns out that some of her tunes along with a few other toe-tappers might actually be able to save lives.

It's a little on the nose, but the BeeGees classic "Stayin Alive" is helping one hospital make sure their patients do just that.

Looking to train first responders in hands-only CPR, New York Presbyterian Hospital created a 40-song playlist jam-packed with artists from Beyoncé to the Barenaked Ladies. The one thing these songs have in common is they all bop along at 100 beats per minute. Yes, even Hanson can help save a life. The key to hands-only CPR is 100 compressions per minute. The songs work as a guide for timing compressions.

So the next time you need to get that heart pumping, just remember ABBA.
