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
How LUCAS 3 Chest Compression Device Enhances Power
Deploy easily and quickly
- Low-profile back plate for fast, smooth patient application
- Spacious support structure accommodates larger patients
- A median of only 7 seconds of interruption demonstrated when transitioning from manual to mechanical CPR in clinical use8
- Straps secure patient arms and device during transport
Configure to your protocols within guidelines**
- Configure compression rate, depth, and alerts to your protocols via LIFENET connectivity
- Adjustable ventilation alerts, pause length and count
- Timer to remind rhythm and pulse checks
- Set auto-lowering and pressure pad parameters to your preferences
Easily access and share post-event data**
- Make QI/QA documentation faster and easier with emailed post-event reports
- Connect wirelessly to the LIFENET System
- Easy-access LUCAS device data enables productive post-event review
- Integrate with CODE-STAT 11 data review software
Easy to store and carry
- Battery operation lets the LUCAS 3 go anywhere
- Lightweight and compact carrying case includes a window for quick battery checks
- External power supply enables prolonged operation and charging
- Easy to clean, with disposable suction cup on compression piston
Make asset management easier**
- Easily confirm device or fleet status via LIFENET connectivity
- Receive battery age notifications and upcoming/missed service
** LUCAS 3, version 3.1, LIFENET and CODESTAT are available in major markets.
“[LUCAS] calms the scene down, everyone is able to focus and give better care to the patient. It frees up everyone to give the patient the best shot.”
