Has Amazon figured out how to deliver AEDs?

Recently I wrote about the necessity to have AEDs (automated external defibrillators) everywhere, if we were to save more cardiac arrest victims. I argued that these devices need to be, and in my view can be, much cheaper than they’re now. I mean just look at this new Raspberry Pi Zero computer that costs only 5 USD!

Another approach is to deliver AEDs quickly to the scene of cardiac arrest. It has been proposed to deliver them by air via drones. There are currently many obstacles to this approach, including aircraft, airspace and cardiac arrest factors. Well, Amazon has, for all the different reasons, been very aggressively tackling the aircraft factors. Amazon sells goods and delivers them. And they are no longer satisfied, because we the costumers are not satisfied, to deliver them the next day. They/we want them delivered in a matter of hours. Their solution are again drones and their new delivery service called Amazon Prime Air. Amazon has been well aware of the shortcomings of existing drones, and since they surely have money to invest + vision and drive, they have been working on their own drones. Their new drone is fully autonomous, can fly for 15 miles at speeds up to 60 mph, and what is a great breakthrough, can fly vertically like octocopter and horizontally like a plane.

Rapid advances in the retail business might ultimately benefit other fields, including saving lives of cardiac arrest victims. Check out Amazon’s entertaining video about their new drone presented by Jeremy Clarkson.

What type of doctor do blog readers want?

I’ve recently changed the look of my website, which was basically the same since 2008. When I started it 7 years ago I made this custom pool on the homepage asking visitors to choose the doctor they wanted.

What type of doctor do you want?

It was more of a fun experiment than anything else. But nevertheless I have 7 years worth of votes. So here is how my readers ranked the offered doctors.

Hello World, again!

I started my own personal website and blog in 2008. It seams like ancient history now, and in Internet time it definitely is. I haven’t made any significant changes to it since then, but have decided to finally do them now.

Not much has changed with my new design. It is still very simple, both in terms of design and structure. However the subtle changes will make for a nicer reading experience on desktop and mobile allowing more readers to discover and share my posts.

I hope you will enjoy it.

We need: cheap as chips AEDs

I am starting a new series of blog posts that I’ll call – We need. This is where I will be musing about things the World in a broad sense needs to be a better place. I will not be writing science fiction, but aim to write about what we can achieve soon, with the technology we already have, if we were just a bit more creative and bold.

My first article is about saving human lives with cheap Automated External Defibrillators.
