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.

How to stop a session ending everytime the Echo overhears a comment?

This is my first attempt at making an Alexa skill so I may be doing a lot wrong here. I've made a custom skill, a session begins when somebody says "Alexa run invocation name". From then on, the echo takes every comment as an intent even without saying "Alexa". That means that even if someone says "wow that's cool" or "how do I make it do blah blah blah", it recognises that as an invalid intent and ends the session which means I need to restart the session and I lose all the session variables. Is this how all custom skills work? People are constantly making comments and shutting down the session. Is there something i'v done wrong?
