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.

Is it possible to provide a voice command that switches Alexa between current mode and listening continuously?

Although I don't know what "current mode" refers to I'm pretty sure the answer is "no".

Alexa is always listening when you say the wake word.  Sometimes it thinks it hears the wake word and responds.  Like recently, when I did not say the wake word at all when I mentioned an iPad in a conversation, and Alexa piped up and asked, "Do you want me to order you an iPad?"  I answered, NO!

I just figured it was Amazon always looking to make a few bucks any time Alexa thinks it can get away with it!   ;)
