The Physio-Control Lucas 2 Chest Compression system is designed to be used anywhere that CPR is necessary whether that is in an emergency in the field or in the hospital.
The Lucas 2 is a device designed to make CPR easier. CPR is exhausting for the person performing it, and the Lucas 2 makes that easier. The Lucas 2 does not need to take breaks nor does it tire as long as the battery is charged. This enables professionals to focus on other aspects of rescue.
The Physio-Control Lucas 2 Chest Compression system is designed to complete 102 compressions per minute with a depth of 2.1 inches. The patients that fit in the Lucas 2 system must have a sternum height of 6.7 inches to 11.9 inches and their chest can be no wider than 17.7 inches. There is no weight requirement for the Physio-Control Lucas 2 to perform its operation.
