BVFD Auxiliary Purchases Lucas Device
Thanks to our BVFD Auxiliary Team for purchasing the Lucas3 Device for our volunteer members.
The LUCAS device has been shown to improve quality of chest compressions, increase ETCO2 levels as well as being able to sustain life-saving circulation during prolonged resuscitation attempts. With the LUCAS device, fatigue, individual variations or psychological factors are removed from CPR and there is no longer a need for switching CPR providers every two minutes. LUCAS helps provide high-quality and safer chest compressions in situations such as patient movement and transportation, during prolonged CPR.
Again, we thank the BVFD Auxiliary for bringing this new piece of life-saving equipment to our community.
