Ambulance Drone JUST AMAZING
JUST AMAZING! A Dutch-based engineering student has revealed a prototype 'Ambulance Drone' ... a flying defibrillator!
It can fly at speeds up to 100 kms per hour and tracks emergency mobile calls using GPS to navigate.
If an ambulance took 10 minutes to reach a cardiac arrest patient, the chance of survival is only 8%. But the drone can get a defibrillator to a patient inside a 12 km sq zone within a minute, increasing the chance of survival to 80%.
Once at the scene, an operator, like a paramedic, can watch, talk and instruct those helping the victim by using an on-board camera connected to a control room.

The Ambulance Drone was presented last week on live television in the Netherlands! Today I will be doing the same in Belgium to spread the word.
In the upcoming days we will also be meeting different potential partners to further advance the development of the ambulance drone. I would like to encourage you to leave your feedback on this page on how you think the design can be improved, we would much appreciate it
