UAVs have already proved their value as an aviation search tool, and this year they made headlines by helping rescue surfers and swimmers. Can they also help cope with trauma with traditional hems staff? New South Wales (NSW) in Australia is actively investigating two different ways

blood backup

in July 2017, the Sydney helicopter emergency medical service team, in cooperation with droneadvance, successfully conducted a proof of concept test to evaluate the feasibility of using drones to transport emergency plasma products to the accident scene, explained Kelvin Morton, managing director. And droneadvanced's airboss. He explained that this concept is to make the UAV fly out extra blood to supplement the things carried by the hems crew: the hems team can only carry three units of plasma on the helicopter, but when they leave the scene, they are traumatized. If they need blood transfusion or have many victims, they may often need more units with many practical experiments in life. When this happens, there is an emergency response involving an ambulance. The police and fire brigade receive more plasma and send it to the hems emergency team on the scene as soon as possible. Using a team of drones in the blood bank to send the plasma to the scene will have a significant impact

these tests involved short-range flights to and from the helipad of the Royal North bank hospital. The UAV remained within the line of sight (VlOS), but the ultimate goal was to fly farther. Dr. Brian burns, a prehospital and retrieval medical expert and emergency physician in charge of the rescue helicopter, has been supporting the concept of unmanned aerial vehicles, delivering speeches on social media and intensive care activities in local media and international audiences. In 2017, he suggested that a series of aerial work platforms can be used to deal with short-range missions and remote missions as needed, and they will go beyond the line of sight (bvlos): I will expect to classify the blood delivery request and use one of several UAV options according to the distance,

the idea of using UAVs to deliver blood is not new. For example, in Rwanda, the Ministry of health and zipline have established a system in which fixed wing UAVs can provide blood products to regional hospitals as needed. However, although the Rwanda solution involves parachuting to the designated landing area of the clinic, the concept tested in Australia will involve the kind of accident scenario in which drones fly to hems crew. Dr. Burns said that in these types of tasks, pre hospital blood products are the currency that allows medical service providers to bring patients to live trauma centers, otherwise they will die: drones/drones can effectively deliver life-saving blood products and obtain these life-saving products streamline, efficiently and quickly

Boy Scouts

the second completely different method is to use a UAV equipped with a camera as a scout and arrive early on the scene to collect information about the number of victims and the nature of injuries. Droneadvance is discussing how to set up the test to evaluate the feasibility of using the UAV as a forward scout to evaluate the condition of trauma patients before the hems team arrives at the scene, and the diversion decision can be made even before the crew touches the ground. Morton explained that the purpose of the forward 'reconnaissance' concept is to build on the research of two University of South Australia students Ali al Naji and asanka Perera. They have developed an algorithm that uses RGB spectrum on standard UAVs to calculate the heart rate of people who only use real-time video feeds

regulatory challenges

to make these two concepts a reality, we need to overcome regulatory obstacles, mainly bvlos flight. According to the standard regulations of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), in the blood test in Sydney, the UAV is always in the VlOS. The road to bvlos first shows that the concept is effective and cooperates with CASA. He explained: we will first prove the feasibility of a concept and its potential to save human lives, and then we will invite Casa to enter the [proof of concept experiment]. In the emergency response, the number of employees in 10000 tons of coal mining reached 47.8, and the team was exempt from the standard provisions of mercy flight. Therefore, we only need to ensure that we have a UAV configuration that meets the Casa standard to meet the bvlos standard and detailed SOP. Loneadvantage has experience here. He cooperated with NSW surf lifesaving on the little Ripper project and saw that a drone was saved in January for the first time. Morton added: once we have conducted a series of VlOS tests and developed all SOPs, systems and failure safes, we will extend to bvlos tests under the supervision of Casa

another key step is to select the most suitable UAV model for the actual mission. Although this can only happen further when more work is done to enrich the concept, Morton commented that large fixed wing VTOL aircraft using hybrid thrusters are suitable for rural areas. And these areas can benefit the most from the above help. Dr burns pointed out that Australia suffers from long-distance tyranny, and the time of severe trauma in about 100 minutes is the median time, far beyond the prime time of treatment. He stressed the need to provide blood products for such patients, adding that 90% of preventable traumatic deaths are caused by bleeding

interestingly, droneadvance is not the only one who explores how to transport blood in Australia via drones. The province will build a batch of industrial parks with distinctive characteristics and complete industrial chain. At present, Australia Post, the national postal delivery service company, has two main development trends in the automotive industry. The person in charge has been studying drones that operate drones. According to comments reported in August this year, zipline has begun a dialogue on replicating its Rwandan system in rural Australia. We can see that the remote control aircraft works with hems and lives in the unmanned aircraft network all over the country. It may only be a matter of time
