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.

multiple timer routine?

What's the best way to create a Routine that will launch 7 timers? (Of duration 49, 47, 40, 35, 30, 10, and 6 minutes.)

In Routines I don't see a "Timer" action, and I couldn't find a relevant Skill.

Here's the best thing I can come up with:

Wait 6 minutes
Play Buzzer
Wait 4 minutes
Play Buzzer
Wait 20 minutes
Play Buzzer
Wait 5 minutes
Play Buzzer
Wait 5 minutes
Play Buzzer
Wait 7 minutes
Play Buzzer
Wait 2 minutes
Play Buzzer

But this is pretty weak, in that they aren't timers so it'll just play the Sound once then stop without needing to be shut off, and I guess I won't be able to ask how much time remaining.

Oh, and if the above is the best I can do, is it possible to set the sounds to Play at a particular Volume? I know that before each sound I could add a line to

Set Volume to 10

then after each sound I could add a line to set the Volume to something else (but of course not to whatever volume had been playing before the prior Set Volume command.
