in the United States Kolo 400 000 people die each year from cardiac arrest, and is one of the highest mortality rates. Sometimes the patient is not so important in a time like this will appear a qualified health care provider, it is more important in this situation, the automatic defibrillator (AED), ease of treatment which allows not even a certified doctor, but simply knowledgeable in the matter of this procedure, the person to perform CPR and shock the heart. And if after a call to 911 is the ambulance with the medical team in a few minutes the customer will be delivered AED, which really can increase the chances of survival of the patient.
American company Flirtey plans to be the first to join Sotrudnichestvo with the ambulance service in Nevada, to using drones to deliver defibrillators portable weighing 2.3 kg (with instructions included) to the address, where he called 911. Known and the algorithm of the centers Flirtey: they get command from the Regional center of emergency medical services (REMSA) 911, which receives a call from witnesses of the incident with the man, who suffered cardiac arrest on the basis of territorial jurisdiction. Provides instant response to a call from REMSA – there will be no delay to start the UAV.
Of course, there are certain difficulties associated with the strict rules for commercial drones in the USA regulated BVLOS. Flirtey and REMSA are working on documents that would permit such flights. Besides, it is necessary to provide protection from false calls to steal equipment or to commit unlawful acts against unsuspecting people-the victims of the attack. The developers plan to launch the project in early 2018.
