The survival rate for people with cardiac arrest depends on the time patients get defibrillation. The defibrillator is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy.

A new drone solution could save lives in cases where patients are far away from hospitals. Specially-designed drones developed by the Sweden-based FlyPulse will address this challenge through LifeDrone AED – a transportation drone, equipped with an automated external defibrillator (AED).

According to the company, the system “can improve the survival rate for people with cardiac arrest, where it is difficult to arrive with an AED in time with ambulances or other transportation.” 

The technology includes the mechanical drone system, its payload, electronics, and the software to manage complete operations, with a high level of automation. Software plays a critical role in the success of this application, as several major modules have to be integrated, including flight control and safety, payload management, cloud connectivity for remote telemetry and control, fleet management through a centralized dashboard, and more. 

Live video streaming for situational awareness and remote patient monitoring is also provided, as well as collision avoidance and airspace management.

The company has partnered with FlytBase, which offers an advanced drone software development platform, with “intelligence” and “connectivity” as its core features.

FlytOS, its operating system for drones, is compatible with the widest range of drones and computer hardware platforms. This enables developers to make their applications agnostic to hardware. It provides a number of other capabilities, like, navigation and control, computer vision, payload management, authentication and security, machine learning, a simulator for testing, SDKs for web/mobile, according to suasnews.com.

FlytBase Cloud extends a number of these capabilities to the cloud. It helps developers manage large fleets of drones, connect over wifi/4G networks, and easily integrate drones with other business applications.
