Resuscitation consists of a range of activities that need to be performed timely and correctly.

We suggest you train not only on the LUCAS device, but on your complete local resuscitation protocol, including manual chest compressions, rhythm checks, defibrillation, ventilation, medication and patient management strategies. These are all critical elements for successful resuscitation.

Organizations globally have developed comprehensive protocols and check lists to follow when implementing LUCAS into resuscitation. Find examples of these as well as other useful training tools on our training resources page.

The LUCAS 3 Chest Compression System, version 3.1 is CE-marked, cleared for sales in the US and Canada.
