The world unique achievement took place in Trollhättan, Sweden in December 2021, when an Everdrone autonomous drone delivered a defibrillator that helped save the life of a 71-year-old man.

The Emergency Medical Aerial Delivery service (EMADE), developed by Gothenburg-based company Everdrone, was put to the toughest of tests on the morning of 9th December 2021. In the Swedish city of Trollhättan, a 71-year-old man was shovelling snow in his driveway when he suffered an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Thanks to the combination of an immediate emergency call, the quick actions of Dr. Mustafa Ali and the swift delivery of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), lifesaving measures through defibrillation could be initiated before the arrival of the ambulance.

After the initial treatment on site, the patient was rushed to the hospital and is today fully recovered.
