Electromedics Lucas Chest Compression System
Effective chest compressions deliver vital oxygen to the brain and can prime the heart for a successful shock. Maintaining sufficient coronary perfusion pressure during cardiac arrest improves the likelihood of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC).
- The LUCAS Chest Compression System is designed to deliver uninterrupted compressions at a consistent rate and depth to facilitate ROSC. It delivers automated compressions from the first response in the field to ambulance transport and throughout the hospital. LUCAS facilitates consistent blood flow from the moment it is turned on, helping to improve a patient’s chance for a successful outcome.
- Increasing opportunities for improved outcomes:- Effective, consistent, and uninterrupted compressions according to current AHA guidelines LUCAS is a portable, easy-to-use device that delivers automated, guidelines-consistent chest compressions to improve blood flow in victims of cardiac arrest. LUCAS performs at a rate of at least 100 compressions per minute with a depth of at least 2 inches. It also allows for complete chest wall recoil after each compression and provides a 50% duty cycle equal compression and relaxation time for the chest wall.
- Maintain good blood flow:- Several studies show the effectiveness of manual chest compressions can drop rapidly often after only one minute due to rescuer fatigue.2,3 With LUCAS, automated compressions are delivered consistently and continuously, helping to maintain good circulation to the patient during transport and throughout the hospital.
