UASweekly.com published this week an article about how drones can help during emergencies when conventional first-aid can’t be fast enough due to ground conditions, distance, lack of available personnel. An example is the HiRO (Health Integrated Rescue Operations), telemedical Drone Project, presented at OMED ’17 (Osteopathic Medical Education Conference).
Latest environmental disasters showed the need of getting treatment to the victims as quickly as possible and using drones with remote instructions is a possible way to go. As indicated in the article, the drone and telemedical kit includes an augmented reality interface with Microsoft HoloLens headset, an automated medication bin to be unlocked remotely by a physician, together with video guidance to be followed as guidance and an integrated holographic electronic health record system display.
