Technologies, like drones, are assisting the doctors in delivering medication to their patients swiftly and providing them with better chances of survival.
FREMONT, CA: The recent developments in technology have established the possibility to reshape patient care with the help of wearables. They assist patients in battling heart disease to AI models that can identify and treat sepsis.
Doctors are thoroughly studying several devices, which they presume will have a positive impact on the future of care delivery. Here are some of the research studies that can help the patients, according to the doctors.
Drones May Have a Role in Healthcare
Today, drones may not have the ability to administer CPR for a cardiac arrest victim, but they can still increase the chances of survival of the victims. Doctors are exploring the usage of drones in the healthcare sector as a means of transportation for the automated external defibrillators (AEDs). During a cardiac arrest, every minute is critical, and the devices that are necessary to save the person immediately are rarely available outside any healthcare setting. Therefore, drones can be useful to deliver the equipment necessary to protect life as most of the attacks happen in homes or residential areas.
However, some doctors had initially raised some of their concerns like not knowing the exact ETA of the drones and suggested that it would be better to add an audio cue or how AED can be released from a drone. But according to research, most of the participant doctors had a positive experience while working with a drone, and they have highlighted the capability to stay with the victim while continuing CPR. However, with this technology, the patients and their family members must be comfortable with it, and only then will it be possible to make it a reality.
Doctors and other health organizations are working side by side so that they can provide better treatments to their patients and save their life as much as possible. With the new upcoming technologies, medicine can reach their respective patients soon, which will increase the chances of their survival.
