India's Medical Miracle - 108 Emergency Number

India's Medical Miracle - 108 Emergency Number
Editors Desk

Just 15 years ago, before India's national ambulance service, Indian citizens needing emergency medical attention were on their own.

On the occasion of its 15th anniversary, India's national ambulance service marks a major milestone. Hailed as perhaps one of the most important global health initiatives of the last ten years, the Emergency Management and Research Institute (EMRI), serves 750 million Indian citizens and has saved 1.5 million lives.

Emergency medicine physician S. V. Mahadevan and a team of experts from the Stanford School of Medicine have been with the program since its early inception. Collaborating closely with their Indian colleagues, they helped shape the current form of EMRI, its training programs, and capacity building efforts.

Ambulance Drones

Ambulance Drone
Speeding up emergency medical response can prevent deaths and accelerate recovery dramatically. Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and ACLS medications are compact enough to be carried by a drone. The main reason for this high number of deaths after cardiac arrest is the relatively slow response time of emergency services (10 minutes). Brain death and permanent death start to occur in just 4 to 6 minutes.

With the Ambulance Drone, it is possible to deliver defibrillation to any patient in a 12 square kilometer area within 1 minute. At that speed, survival rates can be as high as 80%. Secondly, the incorporation of a two-way, video supported, communication channel in the drone between 112 operators and the first responders will improve first care. Successful AED usage by lay-persons is currently at 20%. With personalized instructions and communication on the Ambulance Drone, this can be increased to 90%.

In short, the Ambulance Drone helps to save lives by extending existing emergency infrastructure with a network of fast and compact UAVs capable of bringing emergency supplies and establishing communication, anywhere.
