When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Hi
Got my dad who is in his 70s an echo
He doesn't have a debit card but does have a smartphone.  Will I have to use my Amazon account and be able to put the app on his phone?
I'm thinking for his music the unlimited music. Can you just ask it to play albums from bands or do you need a playlist on your phone.?

What's the downside of my having the account in my name and not his?

Thanks

the biggest downside is he will have access to your card.  try getting one of those preloaded cards.   you do not need a playlist to play music.  you can play by song, album, genre or whatever. 

also see the following if no credit/debit card is available
