NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Passengers waiting for a flight at one North Texas airport can practice doing CPR compressions to the steady beat of the Bee Gees disco song “Stayin’ Alive.”
The American Heart Association-sponsored automated kiosk was unveiled Tuesday at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The Dallas-based association joined forces with American Airlines for the Hands-Only CPR kiosk in Terminal C for a six-month test run.
The association says the Bee Gees song has the “perfect beat for proper CPR” using chest compressions and no rescue breaths.
The touch screen video program gives a brief introduction to the steps of Hands-Only CPR, followed by a practice session and a 30-second CPR test on a mannequin. The kiosk provides feedback about the depth, rate of compressions and proper hand placement.
According to the heart Association, research has shown that immediate CPR can double or triple the chances of survival.
