Airborne help


Every second is vital. In the event of a heart attack, receiving immediate treatment can be the difference between life and death.

According to a Swedish research team, defibrillators could soon be delivered by drone. In emergencies they can be on the scene quickly, irrespective of traffic or terrain.

Recently, the pilotless aircraft were sent out to accident sites as part of a four-month test. On 12 occasions they arrived 7 times faster than the designated ambulance.

Currently, however, they can only be deployed in sparsely populated areas when visibility is good. And provided expert operators on site.

But the team is constantly improving the technology. Soon it could be saving lives.

Just like the fire-fighting drone. Salvation on wings.
