There are many inventions in the world, but some of the most important are the ones that save lives.
The Ambulance Drone
The ambulance drone is a drone created by a Dutch engineer to create life-saving support in a matter of seconds. The drone is equipped with a webcam which can be used to talk with doctors from far away. It also has a loudspeaker on board so you can communicate with the doctor that is helping you. This drone is made specifically for cardiac arrest situations, so it comes equipped with two defibrillators without instructions. Nearly 800,000 people per year suffer from cardiac arrest, and only 8% survive. But with this drone chances could increase by nearly 95%. Now keep in mind this is a prototype but could be launched five years from now with an estimated $20,000 price tag.
The Life-Saving Bazooka
This may sound like a toy but really it is the next generation of rescue. The bazooka is a medium sized double canister launcher that fires a canister the size of a baseball at any point you need. Once it comes in contact with something like water or a body, it shall inflate into a life preserve. They are trying to make it so that the second round shoots a flare into the water.
