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.

Possible stupid question but after you set up the Echo through your tablet/smart phone do you need to have the tablet/smart phone switched on all the time to use Echo?
  As an older person I am tempted to buy one of these but do not want to have to switch on my tablet/smart phone each time I want to use Echo.
  Thanks in advance for any replies

Once the Echo has been set up, the mobile/app doesn't really play a role anymore.
You can switch off the App or even the Tablet/Mobile.

I have even powered off the Echo, and turned it back on; it retains it's settings. So you're good.

Of course, were you ever to move this Echo to say another house/wifi system, you'd need to app to configure it again.
