"In the event of someone in the home of where an Alexa is present having a sudden cardiac arrest and you're unsure what to do shout 'Alexa, emergency CPR'.

"Alexa will assist you by telling you what to do, including CPR instructions."

Note: this doesn’t replace physical training but could save a life."

While another said: "Good to know #Alexa can guide #cpr in the event of #cardiacarrest BUT important to call the emergency number first so an ambulance can be dispatched. Where telephone-CPR instructions not provided, Alexa will be useful as time is critical."
