LUCAS 3 chest compression system

Increase your
power for advanced
resuscitation

Deliver high-performance, continuous chest compressions with less strain, micromanagement, and risk for the caregiver. The LUCAS chest compression system, provides benefits both to the cardiac arrest patient and the resuscitation team.

Shown to improve CPR quality, on the move and over long durations

 

The LUCAS device extends the reach of care by maintaining chest compressions during transport to advanced lifesaving therapies, including ECMO or PCI in the cath lab. It can improve provider safety, avoiding fatigue over long durations and reducing transport risks by allowing caregivers to sit belted. And it can increase the efficiency of caregiving teams, calming the scene and providing an extra pair of hands so you can focus on the patient and underlying conditions.

KEY BENEFITS

Improve CPR quality

Overcome caregiver fatigue, individual variations in CPR quality, and awkward positions while providing chest compressions by using automated, guidelines-consistent CPR. The LUCAS device provides consistent and high-quality chest compressions shown by research to increase the chances of good patient outcomes. The LUCAS device has demonstrated to increase blood flow to the brain4,5 and achieve higher EtCO2 values compared to manual compressions.6,7

Extend the reach of care

Deliver consistent chest compressions for the duration needed to give difficult patients access to advanced lifesaving therapies. The LUCAS device helps to bring interventions such as ECMO/ECPR within reach for patients who don’t respond to CPR and defibrillation alone. Plus, it can be used during angiography and PCI in the cath lab, allowing for potential lifesaving intervention.

Keep your team safe

Manual CPR involves risks to caregivers particularly during patient transport and during interventions in the cath lab. The LUCAS reduces these risks by facilitating safer transports, reducing x-ray exposure of the CPR provider during PCI, and lessening body strain and awkward work positions while delivering high-quality chest compressions, regardless of treatment surface or movement requirements.

Enhance team efficiency

Calm chaotic scenes and enable caregivers to focus their skills and judgment where they matter most. When you rely on LUCAS to handle proper chest compressions, you can focus on other life-saving tasks and speed diagnosis and treatment of underlying conditions.
