Extend your care reach
Deliver consistent chest compressions for the duration needed. Bring ECMO/ECPR within reach for patients who don't respond to CPR and defibrillation alone and help save more lives during angiography and PCI in the cath lab.
Keep your team safe
Help reduce caregiver risk during patient transport and in the cath lab with reduced x-ray exposure and less body strain to the CPR provider.
Enhance team efficiency
Focus on other lifesaving tasks and speed up diagnoses and treatment of underlying conditions.
Deploy easily and quickly
Configure to your protocols within guidelines*
Easily access and share post-event data*
Store and carry with ease
Make asset management easier*
*LUCAS 3, v3.1, LIFENET and CODE-STAT are available in major markets. Please contact your local Stryker representative for more information about the LUCAS device and data connectivity.
Assembled dimensions: 22.0 x 20.5 x 9.4 inches
In carrying case dimensions: 22.8 x 13.0 x 10.2 inches
The rate of compressions is 102 +/- two compressions per minute
The device with battery (no straps) weighs 17.7 pounds. The battery weighs 1.3 pounds.
There is no patient weight limit. The chest height can be between 6.7 to 11.9 inches with a maximum chest width of 17.7 inches.
