LUCAS 3, v3.1 chest compression system

Increase your power for advanced resuscitation

Deliver guidelines-consistent, high-quality 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 durations1,2,3

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 they can focus on the patient and underlying conditions.

Key benefits

Help keep your team safe

The LUCAS device reduces the risk to the caregiver by facilitating safer transports, reducing x-ray exposure to the CPR provider during angiography and PCI, and lessening body strain and awkward work positions while delivering high-quality chest compressions, regardless of treatment surface or movement requirements.

Bridge to definitive care

Deliver guidelines-consistent chest compressions for as long as needed to allow difficult-to-resuscitate patients access to advanced lifesaving therapies. The LUCAS device helps bring life-saving interventions like ECMO/ECPR within reach of patients who don’t respond to CPR and defibrillation alone.

Improve CPR quality

The LUCAS device provides high quality guidelines-consistent chest compressions, shown by research to increase the chances of good patient outcomes, while helping to prevent caregiver fatique, variation in CPR quality and CPR related injuries in healthcare providers.

The LUCAS device has demonstrated increased blood flow to the brain4,5 and achieved higher EtCO2 values compared to manual compressions.6,7
