Our post about drones in the security industry generated a lot of interest, and people have been wondering what innovations will be made beyond enhanced surveillance. There are many different practical applications these machines can be used for, but we came across another interesting video displaying the potential of drones to respond to emergency medical situations. In the following video, you will see how a drone can respond quicker than an ambulance and deliver a defibrillator, which is a small device that sends an electric pulse to the chest or heart. It is used as an emergency medical treatment for people suffering cardiac arrest. Just think of how quickly a drone can respond to a situation when given a fixed position. Unlike ambulances that must navigate streets, a drone only has to go in a straight line from its launch point to its destination, greatly increasing the odds of survival.
