The Elves did actually look at this when G Series was being written, and discovered that a study conducted at the University of Illinois had identified Stayin' Alive as the best tune to use for the purpose.

One of the team noted that the Queen song Another one bites the dust also has 103 bpm and would work equally as well, but for some reason it was seen as inappropriate for purpose ...


EDIT: Ms Moon has been reading the same article I have!

We are of one mind, suze. I actually learned that from a friend of mine who is a paramedic, so it seems to be true that at least some people use it in practice.

Would've thought that there was a temptation to skip every fourth pulse if you used Another One Bites The Dust, though...

Presumably not this version though?

Nellie the elephant and staying alive ceased to be relevant, even before the QI episode was aired. The rules for CPR get reviewed and updated from time to time and a few years ago, the number of compressions was doubled.

Anyway, on the subject of internal organs, in the male abdomen more of the fat is inside the abdominal cavity, around the internal organs. In a female abdomen most of the fat is subcutaneous. This is quite apparent in abdominal CT scans.
