The LUCAS™ Chest Compression System is an external device that provides chest compressions during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The rescuer attaches LUCAS to the patient and then turns it on so the device can take over to provide chest compressions for the resuscitation effort.
Both EMS and hospital professionals choose LUCAS because it…
* Provides effective, consistent and uninterrupted compressions, and hands-free compressions in most situations,
* Provides good circulation during patient transport,
* Enhances safety during transport for both EMS personnel and the patient,
* Is easy to use, maintain and bring along
The 2005 American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines emphasize the importance of effective, non-interrupted chest compressions during resuscitation. LUCAS can help emergency medical and hospital responders enhance delivery of CPR.
