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 circulation (ROSC).
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.
