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.

Thanks for the heads up, both my iPhone and iPad have this new interface.  It is a significant face lift since the Devices and Smart Home tabs are gone from the main menu.  In their place is a button at lower right that is shaped like a Home with opposing USB cables in it.  Just tap this button and go explore the new interface.
