LUCAS Chest Compression System is to be used for
performing external cardiac compressions on adult
patients who have acute circulatory arrest defined
as absence of spontaneous breathing and pulse, and
loss of consciousness.
Effective Compressions, Good Blood Flow Lead to Lifesaving CPR
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
However, as any rescuer or caregiver knows, performing manual CPR according to
current AHA guidelines is difficult and tiring. In fact, many organizations have added
extra staff to cardiac arrest calls to switch out rescuers performing compressions.
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 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.
