Drone Delivery of AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillators) for Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OOHCA): A Human Factors Analyses with Older Adult

About This Program

The aim of this study is to better understand evaluate the bystander experience of a simulated drone delivered AED for out of hospital cardiac arrest (OOHCA).

Understanding people’s experiences with these novel health delivery technologies will help inform the design of drone delivered AEDs for OOHCA. Prior to participation in simulation scenario of a drone delivered AED, we ask that you complete this survey. This survey is intended to evaluate your eligibility, study group, demographics, and prior experience and knowledge of First Aid, CPR & AED training, technology, and drones.

We estimate that the survey will take about 6-10 minutes to complete. Your participation in this survey is voluntary, and you may choose not to take part, or not to answer any of the questions. If you decide to withdraw after you submit the survey, we will remove your responses from survey data if you notify the researcher within two weeks. We expect to survey a minimum of 15 people.

This project was reviewed and cleared by the Carleton University Research Ethics Board, Clearance #116078. If you have any ethical concerns with the study, please contact the Carleton University Research Ethics Board by email at ethics@carleton.ca.
