Physio-Control demos how to incorporate the LUCAS into a "pit crew" approach to resuscitation

Cam Pollock and John Friederich from Physio-Control put on a demonstration for us at Fire-Rescue Med 2012 to show how the LUCAS Chest Compression System can be incorporated into a "pic crew" concept for CPR and resuscitation. As you will see the application of the LUCAS device need not cause a significant delay in chest comrpessions.

    I have to say, that was one of the best CPR device demonstrations i've seen. Only a 3 second delay to apply? That's impressive!

For sure, in severe chest pain you must consider PE! The vital signs and ecg did not, in this case, support that diagnosis, but patients don't always "read the textbook." Read the conclusion, see what you think!
