Stryker Physio-Control LUCAS 1 Features
The Stryker Physio-Control LUCAS 1 is a chest compression system – used for performing External Cardiac Compression on adult patients. Using the LUCAS 1 System instead of manually doing chest compressions during CPR, means you can get better quality chest compressions while increasing the patient’s EtCO2 levels and circulation. The Stryker Physio-Control Lucas 1 is a portable decode that emergency first responders can carry in a backpack. The Stryker compression system consists of an upper part that contains a pneumatic driven piston rod, to achieve the best compression and a backplate. The System does not require any electricity to run it is powered by breathing oxygen or air from a wall outlet.
- Requires no electrical supply and has no conducting parts on the outside, except for the hose attachment, and the claw lock bar.
- The device maintains consistent chest compression over a long period of time.
