Physio-Control has launched its Lucas 3 Chest Compression System, version 3.1. The new versos gives new capabilities for tailored device functionality while supporting wireless reporting and device status notification sent through email.

The Lucas 3.1 system features setup options for compression rate/depth, pauses, alerts, timer and ventilation for local emergency care protocol. It also has WiFi connectivity with a LifeNet System account that allows users to set up the device for readiness notifications and transmit device reports wirelessly through email.

Lucas 3.1 enables automatic email reports for post-event reviews and device management reports on battery expiration dates, last service date and device maintenance.

“LUCAS continues to lead by customer-focused innovation. With this latest version 3.1 of LUCAS, EMS and hospital response teams have more flexibility to support their local care protocols and can concentrate on making real-time, critical decisions during a cardiac event,” said Erik von Schenck, VP of research and development at Physio-Control, in a press release. “The advanced capabilities with wireless transmission enables our customers to do more with their LUCAS device and proactively manage assets, device maintenance and post-event reviews.”

Physio-Control’s Lucas chest compression system is designed to help clinicians deliver high-quality chest compressions for adults who experience sudden cardiac arrest. It is an external mechanical device that gives uninterrupted automatic chest compressions at a rate and depth that are consistent with CPR guidelines from the American heart Association and the European Resuscitation Council.
