Defibrillator Drone Could Deliver Life-Saving Tech Much Faster Than Ambulance


Scientists from the Moscow Technological Institute showcased what could be the future of accessible medicine, a drone equipped with a defibrillator, which could decrease response times to heart attack cases dramatically. The drone’s maximum speed is about 30 mph, it features a maximum flying distance of about 15 miles, and it can be operated for 30 minutes without charging.

  • New 'Life Guard Drone' Saves Drowning Bathers in Under a Minute

    Drones have revolutionised many industries already, including photography, military reconnaissance, and even sports video, but the latest drone innovation may save your life. A unique quadcopter drone developed for the beaches of Spanish Catalonia is designed to save drowning bathers by tossing them a lifejacket from the air. The drone is operated by rescue workers from the beach, which use a built-in video camera to navigate the quadcopter and life vest to a drowning swimmer and allows rescuers to monitor an emergency situation real-time. Developers claim the drone can reach a drowning bather in less than a minute, compared to a life guard, who usually takes up to three minutes. The drone is still being tested, but it could be saving lives by the end of the year.

  • FDA Gives Green Light To Life Saving Algorithm

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration this month granted official approval for an algorithm used in hospitals to help predict sudden patient deaths. The algorithm is the work of ExcelMedical. It’s a system called the Wave Clinical Platform. It works by monitoring patient vital signs and then sending alerts warning of impending potentially fatal heart attacks or respiratory failure up to six hours before a patient suffers such an event. This is the first time that an algorithm used this way has been given FDA approval.

    Google parent Alphabet has been developing its Project Wing delivery drone for several years.

Alphabet’s drone incorporates both propellers and wings, the former enabling it to hover for dropping off deliveries via a tether, and the latter giving it more speed and stability in flight to and from its destination.
