West Cork Rapid Response shared St John First Aid's video.

St John First Aid

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.
