We have already heard and read countless articles regarding the future usages of drones. Drones have been mentioned as future mailmen, possible surveillance gadgets, and now it is being investigated as a possible health solution.
Based on the article’s claims, they mentioned how drones could deliver defibrillators 17 minutes faster than an average ambulance could. That is a very significant difference.
Anything regarding recovery in health is a matter of time. If drones can bring the same equipment as ambulances but come to the rescue five times faster, I think drones are a lot more reliable.
Traffic and chaoticness, are two of the biggest variables as to why ambulances can not rush faster than a drone. Drones don’t need to deal with these issues at all which makes them more efficient as mentioned before.
I think if more and more drones start actively participating in these medical field services, a lot more patients will survive and be at ease when crisis alerts.
