DALLAS, Tx. – The American Heart Association has announced that the voice-activated Amazon Echo can how give all three instructions for CPR, heart attack and stroke warning signs. “Any system that can reliably reduce delays in medical care for cardiac arrest, heart attack and stroke has the potential to improve health outcomes,” said Dr. Robert Neumar, chairman of emergency medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School, in a statement. “Anything we can do to have not only more bystanders do CPR but have them start sooner is likely to have an impact on survival.” To access the CPR information, users ask Alexa, “Alexa, ask American Heart” to ensure they’re hearing science-based information from the AHA. Alexa first tells the user to call 911 before offering other instructions.
