AED delivery drones arrived prior to ambulances in 64%

aed

shows a Swedish Study on Defibrillator Delivery by Drone which was carried out in a clinical trial by the Department of Medicine, Centre for Resuscitation Science, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden. Early defibrillation is critical for the chance of survival in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Drones, used to deliver automated external defibrillators (AEDs), may shorten time to defibrillation, but this has never been evaluated in real-life emergencies. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of AED delivery by drones in real-life cases of OHCA.
